Read an Excerpt

From Prayerfulness
When we do seek to combine daily prayerfulness with meditation or contemplation, a circle of grace is formed which feeds, deepens, and enlivens our spiritual life. We see clearly and act with love. Such a sense of spiritual mindfulness also helps us navigate the perils of spiritual intimacy that face anyone interested in having the type of rich interior life out of which to live compassionately and meaningfully in today's anxious world.
