Spiritual Growth Through Meditation And Prayer

Welcome to wildinside.net, a site about spiritual growth. My name is Nathanael Meyer, and I started this site to explore questions like, what does it mean to be spiritually mature? How can I cultivate a vibrant, transformational spirituality in my everyday life? What is enlightenment or union with God, and is it attainable for mere mortals like me?

I'm especially interested in contemplative Christianity. The Christian faith has shaped Western culture, for better and worse, yet the traditional beliefs have lost legitimacy for millions of people. Still, many of us continue to be drawn to the life and message of Jesus. Is Christianity dying, or being transformed into something new? Is a new Reformation happening and what does it mean for those of us who seek to be followers of Jesus? I believe the contemplative tradition of the church is key to a renewal of Christian spirituality.

Thank you for joining me here. I hope you find something of value in these pages.
