In ‘Still Points’, Richard Hendrick, a Capuchin Franciscan priest-friar based in Dublin, invites readers on a journey of discovery. Using the Christian contemplative tradition of sacred mindfulness of the present moment, ‘Still Points’ guides readers through a daily practice of sacred pause to come to a deeper and more holistic understanding of the intersection between mindfulness, faith, and wonder at the natural world. Taking us through the natural seasons of the year and the major feasts of the Christian tradition, he shows us how, through encountering deeply the ordinary miracles of everyday life, we can cultivate a practice of reflective stillness to enable us to encounter the Divine Presence that holds all things in being through love, allowing us to live more authentically and with more joy in our lives.
In an uncertain world, we all seek a sense of security and inner peace. In Still Points: A Guide to Living the Mindful Meditative Way shows us how to achieve this, simply by following a daily spiritual practice. In doing so, we enter into a deep connection to sacred stillness, revealing to us the beauty within the present moment.
In a book that can be followed throughout the year, or dipped in and out of to find ‘still points’ in times of distraction and worry, Brother Richard brings us on a transformative journey of meditation, poetry and sacred pause, enabling us to experience a sense of peace, happiness and belonging in our lives.
