Mindfulness in Christian Spirituality

Full Product Description

The popular and prevalent practice of mindfulness today (Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction) originated from the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Its non-religious, self-help focus is rooted in Buddhism and native American wisdom.

This book explores wealth of insight that the ancient tradition of Christian mysticism can offer to those who wish, in Aquinas' words, to experience 'The simple enjoyment of the truth.' The essential difference of the Christian approach is that it is rooted in grace: non-judgmental acceptance is a gift to be received rather than a solution to be worked at.

Stefan Reynolds traces the key elements of mindfulness in Christian spirituality through the centuries looking at Jesus as a teacher of contemplation; the Desert Mothers and Fathers as exemplars of setting thoughts aside; Augustine's recognition of self-knowledge as the way to knowledge of God; detachment in Meister Eckhart; loving attention inJulian of Norwich; 'God among the pots and pans' - living in the present moment with Brother Lawrence and much more.
