This website explores the beauty of being present to God, to ourselves, and to others through the practice of mindfulness...the art of embracing all the moments of life, pleasant or unpleasant, with acceptance and curiosity. I hope you find something here to light your way as you explore the path of mindful Christian living.
Mindfulness is an ancient practice with widespread application in the modern world. Simply defined, mindfulness is the practice of paying attention to the present moment without judgment.
Guides for Practice
No need to reinvent the wheel -- a variety of free mindfulness meditation guides (written, audio, and video) are available online. You can also find tips on posture, attitude, and focus during meditation sessions.
I learn best through stories, and perhaps you do too. Here are some of my own experiences and thoughts related to the practice of mindfulness meditation within a Christian framework.
Christian Virtue & Mindfulness
Mindfulness is a powerful vehicle for the cultivation of Christian virtues, consistent with centuries of contemplative Christian practice. God dwells in the present moment, and He invites us to join Him there.
The world is full of wisdom about mindfulness and about the role of present-moment awareness in Christian formation. Trainings, books, and other resources can support you in your journey.
