Rick Warren and Ken Blanchard Team Up! 

Rick Warren and New Age/Buddhist Promoter Ken Blanchard have teamed up. Has Warren known about Blanchard's New Age sympathies? How could any discerning Christian not know? Ken Blanchard has kept it no secret, and his love for the New Age only becomes more obvious as
time goes on.

Will Rick Warren distance himself from Ken Blanchard, as he supposedly did recently with Robert Schuller and Brian McLaren? It puts Warren in another interesting dilemma. Deny the colleagues and friends he has surrounded himself with, or willingly and publicly walk down the same path these other men and women are going.

Contemplative Spirituality: A belief system that uses ancient mystical practices to induce altered states of consciousness (the silence) and is rooted in mysticism and the occult but often wrapped in Christian terminology. The premise of contemplative spirituality is pantheistic (God is all) and panentheistic (God is in all). Common terms used for this movement are "spiritual formation," "the silence," "the stillness," "ancient-wisdom," "spiritual disciplines," and many others.

Spiritual Formation: A movement that has provided a platform and a channel through which contemplative prayer is entering the church. Find spiritual formation being used, and in nearly every case you will find contemplative spirituality. In fact, contemplative spirituality is the heartbeat of the spiritual formation movement.
