#135 Be Still and Listen - Amos Smith

#135 Be Still and Listen - Amos Smith

About my Guest:

Amos has earned bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees—all in religious studies. He is a former wrestler and mountain climber. Now he is an avid hiker, long-term centering prayer practitioner and workshop leader, writer, family man, and certified counselor.  Amos published his first book, Healing The Divide: Recovering Christianity’s Mystic Roots with Wipf & Stock Publishers in 2013. The book has been well received and reviewed and is part of the curriculum for the Living School of The Center for Action and Contemplation [CAC | Richard Rohr].  Amos’ second book, Be Still and Listen: Experience the Presence of God in Your Life, was published by Paraclete Press in 2018 and has been popular with study groups.  Amos’ third book titled Journey of Holistic Mysticism: Experiencing the Integrated Spirituality of the Quakers will be published by Anamchara Books in January 2023.  In workshops Amos emphasizes that centering prayer and contemplative arts have been the saving grace of his life, so he is compelled to share them.
