As some of you know, I write a regular column for the leading faith site Patheos called Wake Up Call. Well, starting this month I’m excited to also be writing a monthly column for a fairly new site, the aptly named Contemplative Journal.
At CJ, I’ll have the opportunity to expand on some of the issues I write about at Patheos at greater length. I’ll continue to explore different aspects of spirituality, with a focus on the contemplative dimensions of life. As I write on the site, Eyes Wide Open will invite readers “to open your eyes in new ways and explore the wisdom of our day and the greater spiritual truths in our midst”.
My first story is titled Is Paying Attention the Key to a Happier Life? and looks at the importance of mindfulness in everyday life. I hope you enjoy it. And be sure to check out the Contemplative Journal site, where you’ll find many wonderful articles and insights from several unique voices on the spirituality scene.
