SPIRITUAL PRACTICES IN SILENCE AND SOLITUDE
Each of us has much room to grow in the disciplines of silence and solitude. Below are a few suggested practices that might help you engage in more meaningful and regular rhythms in these means of grace. Blessings to you!
- Set aside ten minutes each day for silence. Breathe deeply and become aware of God’s presence. Afterwards, journal about your experience.
- Designate a “sacred space” in your home where you can retreat into silence and solitude.
- Drive to work without talking on your phone or turning on the radio.
- Spend an entire day without the use of technology (i.e. computer, iPhone, iPad).
