As Pantheists, one of the key religious practices open to us, is Contemplation. Contemplative practices help to quiet the mind in order to develop deeper concentration and insight. They help us to develop ourselves spiritually and to awaken in us an awareness of the interconnectedness of all life. They help us to cultivate a more compassionate and peaceful approach to life. They help us to reduce stress, improve focus and channel our creativity.
The Center for Contemplative Mind in Society has created a tree outlining many possible contemplative practices. Why don’t you try cultivating one this week?
