    Father Keating, leader of the Centering Prayer movement, understands the contemplative and prayerful life as a form of participation in the suffering, death, and resurrection of Jesus, and his book is both a graceful description of that life and a how-to. Modern Contemplative Prayer. This movement has two main streams. One practices centering prayer – also known as listening prayer and breath prayer –, and is associated with renowned Trappist other stream calls their practice Christian Meditation, and was created by the Irish Benedictine monk John Main, who learned mantra meditation from a Hindu swami when he was serving in Malaysia.

    Clinical psychologist Lorne Ladner, who wrote the excellent book, The Lost Art of Compassion, describes this practice as exercises that bring the conscious and unconscious aspects of the psyche “into alignment with our deepest values so that we can live them in a genuine and spontaneous way.”. Mindfulness is calm awareness of one’s thoughts, feelings, and body activity. Contemplative Light provides education and resources in a global effort towards inner transformation through contemplative prayer and meditation. Find us on Facebook where we have a very active community. WE BELIEVE transformation occurs as we confront our own suffering and that of the world.

      In the book, Christie interweaves concepts from early Christian contemplatives, the American transcendental tradition, and the contemporary ecological crisis. In so doing, he ties together ancient practices and modern concerns, and provides signposts on the contemplative’s journey to a new relationship with both the self and the world.   Suffering will indeed come, but God can give us grace and power to overcome every trial and to fulfill our purpose and mission in His kingdom. The Bible gives counsel on the meaning of suffering and how we can best endure it. Read the list below of scriptures mentioning the suffering we all must encounter.
