Silence Teaches Us Who We Are.

I have been a daily practitioner of Centering prayer since June 1, 2014. Centering prayer has been so life giving that I feel compelled to share it with others who wish to learn more. I cannot keep it to myself!

As a subscriber to Silence Teaches you will receive my free e-book on Centering Prayer, my weekly meditation devoted to a Centering Prayer topic or struggle and frequent book reviews and interviews of current contemplatives.

My book entitled Sitting with God: A Journey to Your True Self Through Centering Prayer scheduled to publish August 20, 2020 by Anamchara Books.

I am a centering prayer workshop leader and have published articles for a number of organizations including Abbey of the Arts , Contemplative Light, Contemplative Outreach , EerdWord , In Search of a New Eden the Ordinary Mystic at Patheos and The Contemplative Writer.

I teach centering prayer in both church and college/university settings.  Please contact me for more information.  I welcome the opportunity to visit with your community. I am currently conducting Introduction to Centering Prayer Overviews via Zoom.

I am currently taking on 1-2 more one on one coaching clients.  Contact me for more information. I help my clients:

  • Create a Long Term, Sustainable Centering Prayer practice
  • Discover and Act on the Dreams and Goals buried within
  • Show up and let the world see the person you are meant to be
  • Eliminate or Neutralize challenges that get in the way of taking daily action on your Dreams and Goals.

I have a Facebook page where I post content everyday and go live at least once per week. Feel free to check it out and friend me. I look forward to seeing you there.

Check out my YouTube Channel. If you missed a Facebook Live I post them here too.

Again, thanks for stopping by!

    I would be happy to read and review your newest book. My email is I prefer a kindle version if possible.

    Thanks for reaching out to me. I look forward to reading it. Perhaps when my book is out in 2017 you could do the same.

    My colleague, Amos Smith, is author of Healing the Divide: Recovering Christianity’s Mystic Roots. Amos would like to know if you want to do a review swap with him.

    Thanks again.
