Exciting interpretation of Christian teaching

I do not identify as Christian. I had a Christian upbringing and left it behind without a qualm as it felt less and less relevant to my life and experiences and also as an external control system which I had no part in creating. I saw a video on youtube of Cynthia Bourgeault talking about 'Centring Prayer' and I was intrigued by her passion and attracted to her description of the purpose of such prayer. It appealed to me as I am a dedicated meditator and here was a new approach to meditating that made sense to me. I was surprised and delighted to listen to Cynthia's discussion of gnosticism, of centring prayer, and especially her discussion of how to awaken the heart as the purpose of our lives. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and have listened to it several times with great interest.
