For those of a Christian background, one of the most profound (if not the most) contemplative meditations is the one based on the Jesus Prayer, a practice that dates back to the time of the New Testament.

Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of God, have mercy on me, a sinner.
Said in constant, prayerful repetition.
Breathing in Lord, Jesus Christ, Son of God.
Breathing out Have mercy on me, a sinner.

Sinner in this context meaning to ‘miss the mark’ as in not fully living into your potential. You do this meditative prayer to ask God to help you live into your fullest potential. That’s what makes this simple meditation so powerful.While you are using a contemplative prayer to go beyond constricted thinking to free you from that which binds your intellect and keeps your ego in charge, you are also calling on a divine source to help guide you towards your fullest and greatest potential.

To assist you in experiencing this mediation, look for my gift of an online guided Prayer of the Heart sessions. Check postings on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

The Science of Spirituality: Orthodox Perspectives

science-spiritualA three-part series delving into the science of spirituality from an Orthodox perspective. Followed by a guided Prayer of the Heart Meditation. Lecture lead by world-renowned physicist and author, Menas Kafatos. Meditation guided by award-winning television producer and happiness teacher, Maria Baltazzi.

Science and spirituality are converging: Both science and spirituality seek unity, one by exploring the outer world, the other by exploring the inner world. Christian spirituality is ancient, profound and applicable to today’s world as a means to remove doubts of the mind and observe inner peace. The relevance of modern quantum mechanics is that we can now have meaningful dialogue between science and spirituality without the trappings of past meaningless opposition. If science is to be relevant to our lives, then dialogue with spirituality and religion leads back to our own experiences in everyday life. The universal field that science is hinting at, is full of the living force, the living Consciousness. It is ever-existing. This is what we call the Living Presence. The Living Presence includes our everyday lives, is not separate from them. If we consciously live the Living Presence, here in the very world we live in, not far away in some transcendent realm. It is right here, right now.

Over the course of three monthly lectures, we will explore how the findings of modern quantum mechanics are actually very relevant to our own everyday lives. The sessions will include practical guided contemplations of scientific truths and how we can apply them in a true spiritual awareness. The vision of such a new way of seeing what is already there is profound, yet common. It is recommended that participants attend all three sessions for maximum understanding and practical benefits.
