Today's quote is from Rich Lewis' Sitting with God: A Journey to Your True Self Through Centering Prayer (Anamchara Books, 2020), 36 - see here. Lewis is a speaker, coach and writer who focuses on engagement with Centering Prayer - the spiritual discipline of silence that he practices - as a means of inner transformation. For more about Centering Prayer, which is rooted in a practice described in the anonymous, fourteenth-century English text, The Cloud of Unknowing, see the Contemplative Outreach website, here. (Carmen Acevedo Butcher offers a very contemporary (2018) and perhaps the most readable version of this text, here.) Read what Rich himself says about Centreing Prayer on his website, 'Silence Teaches Us Who We Are', here. To listen to Lewis' 26 minute discussion of 'Ethical Silence' in the Ethical Evolution Podcast series, click here, or view a 48 minute interview with him on the Monday Mindfulness YouTube program, in which he speaks about what silence teaches us, here.
