Sometimes prayer and meditation can be a bit intimidating. Who has time for it? And with what little free time we do have, prayer feels more like an obligation than anything else. What’s more, besides a Mass and a few minutes before bed, all the other things are for those special mystics, right? In reality, the possibility of a deep and beautiful prayer life is closer than you think. And those who know how to live it begin to discover a powerful source of peace in their lives.
It may seem like a daunting task, but it’s really about a humble daily effort. It’s necessary to first gain a better understanding of the itinerary of the spiritual life, where you have come from and where you are going. For this reason, in our upcoming conference, “Discovering Peace in Prayer: a Practical Guide to Meditation,” Fr. Ian VanHeusen is going to explain a trajectory of growth in the spiritual life together with a series of practical tips on how to learn and improve your meditation and prayer.
Fr. Ian VanHeusen is a parish priest in the Diocese of Raleigh, NC. In addition to studies in English Education at Fayetteville State University, he has a Masters of Divinity and a Masters of Arts in Theology from St. Charles Borromeo Seminary. He has a passion for prayer and meditation and you can find more of his writings on the subject at Ianvanheusen.com.
