Lectio Divina - A Contemplative Outreach Chapter

Lectio Divina - A Contemplative Outreach Chapter | Meditative Prayer | Scoop.it

Lectio Divina, literally meaning "divine reading," is an ancient practice of praying the scriptures. During Lectio Divina, the practitioner listens to the text of the Bible with the "ear of the heart," as if he or she is in conversation with God, and God is suggesting the topics for discussion. The method of Lectio Divina includes moments of reading (lectio), reflecting on (meditatio), responding to (oratio) and resting in (contemplatio) the Word of God with the aim of nourishing and deepening one's relationship with the Divine.

Dr. Amy Fuller's insight:

Practicing Lectio Divina has changed my life....It's a way of praying with scripture with all the wonderful scientific benefits of meditation. 

Stay tuned to this topic for more tips on lectio divina as a deepening spiritual practice.
