Mindfulness for Spiritual Formation and Direction

Mindfulness helps one show up for life. Mindfulness helps us to fully engage in prayer, in relationships, and in even sports. Without mindfulness, we miss out on life.

Two outcomes of this seminar are the following:

  1. The first is that mindfulness allows us to be attentive to the reality of our being united with Christ. At the center of the Christian experience lies the fact that we have been united with Christ,

    “I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me” (Gal. 2:20 NIV).

  2. The second, is that mindfulness helps one develop virtues that contribute to our being less anxious and reactive and more loving.

    Mindfulness is really in keeping with the Christian understanding of the need to live our lives Coram Deo, before the face of God.
