Mindful Silence Saturday Retreat + Sunday Teaching | Bothell, Washington

THE HEART OF CHRISTIAN CONTEMPLATION
HALF DAY RETREAT AND TEACHING
Eastlake Community Church
Mindful Silence really couldn’t be more timely. In some ways our society is spinning out of control. People are unhinged from the center and ground of being. This makes them ripe for the graces found in contemplative spirituality. On the other hand, secular mindfulness is answering the anxious minds of many. But people of faith long for more. They want to link their meditation practice with their faith tradition. This is where Mindful Silence comes in. It helps Christians in particular, but seekers from all walks of life in general, to connect the needs of their body, mind, and heart with a wellspring of spiritual depth found in the Christian contemplative tradition.
Mindful Silence is rich with themes of the spiritual journey like “Discovering Darkness is Light,” Finding Liberation by Discernment,” and “Unknowing to Know.” Each chapter introduces the reader to a trusted teacher in the Christian contemplative tradition as well as historic prayer practice.
