Silence Teaches Us Who We Are.

Thank you for browsing. We are called to love God, love others and love ourselves. We are called to combat social injustice.

I have been a daily practitioner of Centering prayer since June 1, 2014. Centering prayer has changed my life. I enjoy writing short quotes and small articles that share the fruits that I have experienced as a result of my centering prayer practice. These fruits include: compassion, listening, empathy, non dual thinking, letting go, patience, inner calmness, and presence to name a few. I look forward to sharing the beauty of silence and centering prayer with others who want to learn more.

I am currently writing a book with Amos Smith. Jesus Paradox: The Heart of My Faith | Discovering the Dynamic Union of the Historic Jesus and Divine Christ is scheduled to come out in 2017.  Amos Smith is the author of Healing the Divide: Recovering Christianity’s Mystic Roots.  Learn more about Amos’ book and our organization at

I am a leader of writing and publicity for Recovering Christianity’s Mystic Roots (RCMR), a centering prayer and contemplative arts workshop leader, and have published articles for a number of organizations including Contemplatives Today (, Contemplative Outreach (, and Abbey of the Arts (

I look forward to reading your comments and actively responding to all of them. Again, thanks for stopping by.

  1. Hello,

    My name is David Ramos. I am searching for reviewers who might be interested in reading a Christian devotional based on the life of Abraham and came across your blog because you have a similar approach to studying Scripture.

    I’d love to answer any questions you have whether about the book or me.

    In the mean time, here is the Amazon page for the book in case you want to see what it looks like and read the short description:

    As far as learning about the author, you can take a quick look at my about page:

    If you’re not interested, or just a have a huge stack of books you’re working through right now, no problem, just ignore this email 🙂 But if you are interested please reply back and I will be happy to send you a copy!

    Thank you again. I look forward to hearing back from you. Enjoy your week!


    • David

      I would be happy to read and review your newest book. My email is I prefer a kindle version if possible.

      Thanks for reaching out to me. I look forward to reading it. Perhaps when my book is out in 2017 you could do the same.

      My colleague, Amos Smith, is author of Healing the Divide: Recovering Christianity’s Mystic Roots. Amos would like to know if you want to do a review swap with him.

      Thanks again.


      • Thanks! I will send that right over. And I would be happy to get in touch with Amos for a swap. Can you give me his website or email?
