Dr. Amy Fuller's curator insight, July 19, 2013 12:16 AM

The practice of meditative and contempative prayer is one we carry with us throughout the day...this article suggests 7 "sneaky places" to reconnect with ourselves and our creator. Although it's not mentioned as one of these sneaky places, one of my favorite places to reconnect is in the bathtub...a daily baptismal routine :)

New book takes a fun approach to learning and understanding meditation

New book takes a fun approach to learning and understanding meditation | Meditation Practices | Scoop.it

I began making mental plans of how to sell off my belongings so I could jet off to Bali and sit still in the jungle, as she did. It never happened. Instead, I ended up on the side of my bed one morning trying to force my brain to stop thinking. I told myself, "If I just sit and be quiet. I will meditate." Then, my dog started licking my toes, and I gave up. For many, like me, meditation can be a daunting exercise; something only to be mastered from a mountaintop in Tibet.
