A blend of neuroscience, mindfulness, and bible-based Christian contemplative practice.
I talked with Phileena Heuertz, whose new book is out this month. Mindful Silence: The Heart Of Christian Contemplation presents a process-oriented framework of great value to Christians looking to deepen their spiritual lives. Phileena and her husband Chris (who will be on the podcast later this month) run the Gravity Center and give talks and retreats around the country.
