Prayer & Meditation
to this resource for the Spiritual Disciplines. I
have tried to include exercises that will introduce you to or enhance
as many spiritual disciplines as possible, and I have tried to be as
practical as possible.
The exercises and lessons may be seen to have a "Christian bias" - this may offend some people. I have included a non-apology about "Christian bias" and the use of the masculine pronoun when refering to God borrowing from the words of M. Scott Peck in his book People of the Lie for those who are interested or who may be offended by such things.
Many of the exercises draw on the teachings of St Ignatius of Loyola. These exercises are not meant to be an end in themsleves, they are a means to an end. They provide examples and illustrations that can be used and adapted - they are meant to help instill a way of life.
