The most important thing is to do the practice!
You can read all the books you want.
Or watch all the videos you wish.
If you do not do the practice,
It will not do you.
The silence of Centering Prayer has changed my life.
And the silence of Centering Prayer will change your life too.
Centering Prayer is not a sprint.
It is a long term marathon with God.
Centering Prayer practiced daily, weekly, monthly, yearly will transform you.
Centering Prayer does not replace other forms of prayer. It complements them.

The story of Jesus has not waned in its power to change lives. Although many of us grew up in a culture suffused by the mythos of Jesus, today we feel disconnected from the essence and vitality of his teachings. With Resurrecting Jesus, Adyashanti invites us to rediscover the life and teachings of Jesus as a direct path to what may be the most radical of transformations: spiritual awakening.

- facilitate healing of spiritual wounds
- minister to others more effectively
- share your testimonies of how God has worked in your life
How to Write a Devotional: Plus How to Get Them Published – If you read devotionals, you already know how they can be a true blessing. A devotional can uplift you when you’re feeling discouraged, sad or lonely. It can allow you to feel a keen sense of fellowship with another Christian, even if the two of you never actually meet. And, if you are feeling called to write devotionals, know that you have a unique opportunity to bless others and make a genuine difference in their lives. This course takes you step by step through the process, and then guides you towards publishing, if that is your goal.
