Mindful Silence

The Heart of Christian Contemplation
$13.79
($20.00)
Our fast-paced lives are filled with distractions, frequently leaving us disillusioned and dissatisfied--with ourselves, with others, and even with God.

Spiritual practices that used to sustain us fall short when life circumstances bring us to the limits of our self.

After many years leading an international humanitarian organization, Phileena Heuertz experienced the deconstruction of her identity, worldview, and faith. Centering prayer, a Christian expression of mindfulness, was a crucial remedy for her fragmented condition, offering a more peace-filled and purposeful life.

The hallmarks of contemplative spirituality—solitude, silence, and stillness—have never been more important for our society:

In solitude, we develop the capacity to be present.

In silence, we cultivate the ability to listen.

In stillness, we acquire the skill of self-control.

Contemplative prayer helps us discern the voice of God, uncover our true self, and live a life of meaning and purpose.

Filled with insights and wisdom from personal experiences, Phileena introduces us to themes and teachers of contemplative spirituality, as well as several prayer practices, and invites us to greater healing and wholeness by learning to practice faith through prayer.

This is an opportunity to go deeper with God—to experience the Divine and be transformed.
