20 min. Christian Meditation Practice

This video will equip you to go deeper into your meditation practice, especially as you encounter obstacles to sitting in stillness, silence, and solitude for an extended period of time. In his book Christian Meditation, James Finley writes, "to stop meditating simply because we feel we are not good at it amounts to abandoning the very aspects of our self that need patience and loving encouragement. "

In this practice we make space for and compassionately turn our attention towards the places in our hearts that feel unlovable. Use this video a time or two to help familiarize yourself with this kind, compassionate, and courageous presence, and then practice on your own, in full stillness, silence, and solitude.
