Many people feel drawn to what meditation offers (quiet, reflection, stillness, time alone with God), but few have tried it. Some Christians even feel that they shouldnt meditate. In Sensing God, monk, priest, and spiritual teacher Laurence Freeman may just change some minds. And so will the Holy Spirit, Freeman says if they begin to meditate for a few minutes each day.
Is Lent a time for "giving something up" or an occasion for beginning something new? Freeman shows how it can be both. Give up your lifestyle (at least for a season) of being too busy to sit still, and begin to discover what meditation can do in your life. A practical introduction and guide to this ancient Christian practice, Sensing God includes easy-to-follow instructions, guidance and support, as well as 46 enriching daily reflections on the Gospels, highlighting their meaning and continued relevance for living today.
Laurence Freeman, OSB is a Benedictine monk and director of the World Community for Christian Meditation (WCCM), a worldwide contemporary, ecumenical, contemplative community. He travels internationally as a speaker and retreat leader, and has led retreats with such figures as H. H. the Dalai Lama. Fr. Laurence is one of the most popular spiritual authors in England, but his books and articles are not yet known, as they should be, in the U.S.
