Finding the Still Point

A Spiritual Response to Stress
  • By Tom Harpur
Product Description
Stress. We all know about it. We all experience it. Every day, scientific evidence showing the debilitating effects of too much stress mounts. The question is: What to do about it?

Tom Harpur shows how ancient wisdoms, combined with exciting new scientific discoveries and mind/body relaxation techniques, can meet the stress crisis. Divorced from their spiritual underpinnings and/or religious understanding, modern techniques lack the potency they originally had. Central to a spiritual response to stress is the practice of spiritual meditation in its various forms. While many within traditional Christianity still view meditation with suspicion, Harpur shows it to be one of the lost jewels of an historic treasury of Christian gifts designed for healing. More than that, it is a revitalizing gift, which the church can reclaim for its own and offer to those outside the church who are seeking identity, meaning, and purpose.

Organized into four sections: "The Contemporary Scene, " "The Spiritual Response, " "Sources and Mantras, " and "The God Within, " the book considers medical solutions for stress, meditation methods and approaches from many traditions, and the Christian response.
