Description

             Living with the Mind of Christ
                    Mindfulness in Christian Spirituality

Stefan Gillow Reynolds
Forward by Laurence Freeman OSB

Through the teachings of Jesus, and Christian mystics such as St Augustine and Meister Eckhart, Stefan Gillow Reynolds demonstrates that the practice of Mindfulness leading to silent meditation, recommended by many therapists, is not a modern fad but has always had a place within contemplative Christianity.

Review

'Living with the Mind of Christ is a work of scholarship and wisdom that makes contemplation contemporary. Stefan Reynolds has a strong theological and historical connection with the Christian contemplative tradition. This enables him to recognise what might seem 'new' hopes and remedies as being also manifestations of a perennial and universal wisdom. This is a necessary awakening for the modern mind. It is a delightful surprise to see that we inextricably belong to a tradition of wisdom even when we think we are inventing things for the first time. For the Christian, this book will lead to a deeper understanding of the 'mind of Christ' a source of fresh and conscious living that lifts us up and beyond dour familiar woes.' --Laurence Freeman OSB

'This is a truly pioneering book. Drawing on works from early Christianity to the great Christian meditation masters of today, Stefan Reynolds reveals how contemporary secular meditation and Mindfulness find many parallels in the meditative practices of Christian saints and mystics through the ages. This is a most helpful guide for developing Christian Mindfulness for our secular world by reviving some of the essential teachings of the Christian tradition.' --Ursula King, Professor Emerita of Theology and Religious Studies, University of Bristol

'Stefan Reynolds shows how Mindfulness can be an entry point into Christian prayer and meditation and even to the deep riches of mysticism. The book speaks from a solid Catholic tradition and yet is open and accessible for everyone. Dr Reynolds shows that the Mindfulness of Christ sets us free from unnecessary worries.' --Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O Connor
