BB66: Praying Silently with Rich Lewis
Praying Silently with Rich Lewis
As we transition from a material age to a more esoteric, spiritual age, ancient practices are being dug up and revived. Today’s guest, Rich Lewis, is a practitioner of centering prayer, also known as contemplative prayer or silent prayer, which has been practiced by monks for millennia. It’s not entirely dissimilar to certain types of Buddhist meditation. In this conversation, we talk about the what, how, and why of centering prayer.
