On the positive psychology of Christian contemplative prayer
- I've experimented with secular meditation, some benefits of which have been tested, with ambiguous results ( journals.sagepub.com/doi/abs/10.1177/1745691617709589 ).
- Now I'm more into specifically Christian meditation (you might call it Christian contemplative prayer), along the lines of de Molinos ( what wedding apparels to wear for 2nd wedding bride adamford.com/molinos ), Brother Lawrence ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Practice_of_the_Presence_of_God ), and de Mello ( dt.pepperdine.edu/…/Anthony%20de%20Mello%20-%20Sadhana%20-%… ).
- So, has specifically Christian meditation been seriously tested for its benefits? They might be quite distinct.
