This introduction to Christian mindfulness offers a brief explanation of contemporary mindfulness combined with a practical guide to mindfulness as a way of Christian living.
It considers the mindfulness of God and Christ as explored by some of the great Christian thinkers and writers, such as Francis of Assisi, Teresa of Avila, Brother Lawrence and Pierre de Caussade, whose insights are discussed.
It serves as a companion to beginning the practise of Christian mindfulness techniques. Over forty days, examples of mindfulness in the Old and New Testaments are examined, followed by an introduction to classic Christian writings on the techniques of mindful prayer. Each section contains a practical suggestion for incorporating mindfulness practises into everyday life.
Also explored are aspects of mindfulness as they are manifested in the practise of pilgrimage, with suggestions as to how they can be incorporated into a personal physical and spiritual journey.
