Practicing the Presence of God - Brother Lawrence (Full Audiobook on Youtube)

Practicing the Presence of God - Brother Lawrence full audio
Dr. Amy Fuller's insight:

A beautiful presentation of this classic book available to watch and  listen to FREE on you tube!  

To read the free text:  http://www.ccel.org/ccel/lawrence/practice 

Brother Lawrence resolved to make the “Love of God” the purpose of all his actions. He found such satisfaction in this practice that he felt the same intensity of the presence of God when he was working in the kitchen as he did at daily prayers. He purposed all actions for the love, praise and joy of God.

This is mindfulness from a Christian perspective.

Abide in Prayer - Soul Shepherding

Abide in Prayer - Soul Shepherding | Meditative Prayer | Scoop.it

Maybe people that we work with in spiritual direction/mentoring find it hard to be still with Jesus. When they get alone and quiet themselves for prayer they have trouble settling down. Their bodies are antsy. Their minds are restless and wander from one thought to another. 


Using short phrases from Scripture is a way to practice our abiding in prayer. It’s a way into contemplative prayer in which we seek to be still with Jesus and grow in his peace and power.

Christian Mindfulness?

Christian Mindfulness? | Meditative Prayer | Scoop.it

For those unfamiliar with the term, mindfulness is the English term for Buddhist meditation. The practice found its way into the therapy world in large part due to its demonstrated efficacy in stress reduction and preventing relapse of clinical depression. The latter finding came as a great surprise in the most unexpected of places – the stereotypically stuffy, bow tie-wearing British accent-donning academic world of Oxford University. The academic world, which is leery of all things religious, made the leap of accepting and promoting a religious practice in treatment of depression because they recognized that it works. What about the Christian world?

Dr. Amy Fuller's insight:

Thoughtful perspective on mindfulness and meditative perspective on Rampant Theology. ..

  • "Spiritual discernment calls for us to move beyond submission to simple worldly categories like (“Buddhist” and “Christian”) to functionally proclaiming Jesus as Lord."

Christian Meditation for Children and Young People | Hearing the Still Voice Inside

Christian Meditation for Children and Young People | Hearing the Still Voice Inside | Meditative Prayer | Scoop.it

Those teaching a programme of Christian Meditation need to recognise that each child is born as a spiritual being; listen to what the child has to offer; honour each child’s relationship with the divine; always make the experience of meditation positive; and never judge the child’s meditation.
