    Lectio Divina - The Sacred Art

    Product Description

    "Lectio divina, which means sacred reading, is an ancient contemplative practice of listening deeply to the voice of God in sacred texts. In recent years there has been a reclaiming of the riches of contemplative prayer forms of Western traditions. Through the practice of lectio divina you become present to each moment in a heart-centered way. Gradually, the practice of lectio expands your capacity to sense God's presence until all of life becomes a cascade of prayer.

    Drawing on her own experience as a monk in the world, Christine Valters Paintner breaks open the movements of this spiritual practice. She makes them accessible to the contemporary reader who longs for a more pervasive experience of the holy in the everyday but lives far away from the sanctuary of a monastery. She includes simple, engaging and meaningful prayer experiences that include: a simple heart-centered practice to connect with the infinite Source of compassion already dwelling within you for those times when you long to cultivate more kindness toward yourself; a series of contemplative practices to reclaim the lost art of savoring, to listen to what is stirring deeply within your heart, and to receive the gifts of silence; expanding lectio divina beyond scriptural texts to include visual art, music, nature and life experience; suggestions for group experiences and times of retreat.
