See, Love, Be
In this new book, he offers an 8-week practical guide with audio meditations, featuring new versions of familiar practices. How can we as human beings go beyond the vital initial aspiration of functioning well towards living a truly liberated, nuanced and compassionate life? To help in our explorations, Tim introduces the themes of see, love, be, which connect strongly with the concerns of all great religious traditions: spiritual insight, how we love, and authenticity of being.
[On Mindfulness and Christian Spirituality] Measured and gracious in its argument.
Reading Tim Stead’s new book is a bit like listening to bird song before dawn. As you listen to the overall song different voices start to emerge and a sense of peace begins to alight on you . . . Some of [this writing] is among the best I have read anywhere.
This is a stimulating book in its attempt to integrate mindfulness practice – which is originally derived from eastern, Buddhist spirituality – with our western, Christian heritage. Stead shows how our Christian thinking and spiritual practice can be enriched by mindful wisdom, leading to a deeper openness and fuller experience of God’s grace. This book is for people who like to think outside of the book and for those who are looking to enhance their spiritual practice.
The book on mindfulness that many of us have been waiting for! Tim Stead writes with disarming honesty for anyone seeking a fruitful and truthful way to live
A fascinating and insightful examination of the links between the Christian contemplative tradition and the stress-reducing mindfulness programme developed by Professor Mark Williams and others. I learned so much from reading this book and strongly recommend it.
The popularity of mindfulness in our time is a reminder that the ancient contemplative practices of attentiveness and stillness are needed more than ever. Tim Stead suggests that the practice of mindfulness brings gifts to Christian faith and living. It is more than just another therapy – it makes space for God.
