    Mindfulness and Spiritual Awakening


    by Martina Lehane Sheehan


    Whispers in the Stillness invites us to see how the increasingly popular practice of mindfulness can be a doorway to spiritual experience. Interweaving stories and step-by-step meditations, along with psychological and scriptural wisdom, it provides guidance in discovering how the Spirit can reach us through moments of stillness and mindful awareness.

    Written by psychotherapist and retreat director Martina Lehane Sheehan, this book offers a new way of understanding how the combined practices of mindfulness and spirituality can lead to transformation.

    "Martina Lehane Sheehan, in her book Whispers in the Stillness, walks us through the practice of mindfulness. Interweaving references from Christian and Buddhist teachings, she gently leads us inward. Sheehan is a woman who understands the richness and the challenge of being present. Not only is she a psychotherapist and retreat leader but she is a woman who does her work. Woven throughout her writing, she humbly shares her own stumblings, the times when she gets caught wandering in the wilderness of her own mind. I appreciate her honesty and willingness to reveal her humanness. This helps make the practice more accessible, more user friendly one might say. We get to experience, through her vulnerability, just how it is to forget and then pull ourselves back to being aware. This also makes the book easy to read. It is enough to try to be present each moment without having to struggle with complicated doctrines. Thus Whispers in the Stillness reveals Sheehan’s easy spirit and the simplicity of the practice itself."
