An Advent of Contemplative Practices


Day 0: November 27


Have you ever felt fragmented and off kilter? I have, a number of times in my life. To center myself, my mind and spirit, I have determined to journal every day.

I discovered an excellent prompt (or series of prompts) in the image of the Tree of Contemplative Practices. Thanks so much to the website http://www.contemplativemind.org for the genesis of this journal idea I will be doing a daily Advent discipline of journaling each day in Advent 2021.

Want to join me on my journaling journey?

In the past few decades, I have engaged in all of these prayer and contemplation practices. Contemplation, prayer and meditation help center and calm me. (The more active practices energize me!) See whether these practices might help you, too!
