In the award-winning Christ-Centred Mindfulness, leading academic and experienced mental health worker Dr Katherine Thompson draws on the rich Christian tradition to present Christian mindfulness exercises that help us slow down, connect to what is happening inside ourselves and make space to listen for God’s guidance in everyday life.
Of utmost importance in this process is learning how to stop and breathe. In the quietness that follows, our spirit is able to hear what God’s Spirit is saying to us. Our breath is open to perceiving God’s breath.
The exercises in Breathe are designed to help you to take time out of your busy life – to stop, breathe and listen to God. Take some time out now, and learn how to breathe.
