Practice: The Grounding of Contemplative Practice

Focus for the Day

We will focus on the importance of contemplative practices, grounding ourselves in silence and an openness to the Spirit’s presence within our hearts. It is essential that we delve more deeply into the contemplative tradition within Christianity as we recognize the pressures we face in today's world. By anchoring ourselves in dedicated times of silence, resting in God’s presence, we encounter a “spaciousness” in which we can find our true selves, beyond our ego-grasping mind.
