Many Christian commentators have been taken aback by the seemingly unstoppable rise of the 'mindfulness revolution' that has occurred over the past decade. But there are many Christians who worry that mindfulness techniques constitute a covert import from Buddhism.
How far are Christians adopting Buddhist techniques, ideas and ideologies? Do we risk squaring Buddhist ideology and approaches to fit the Christian circle?
Beginning with an exploration of the practice of mindfulness in its Buddhist origins, Peter Tyler reflects on the practical use of mindfulness, its place within the Christian tradition of prayer, and its future within the Christian tradition.
Tyler argues that far from a foreign import mindfulness is not only endemic but essential to the Christian understanding of how the human person relates to the divine.
Each chapter concludes with practical exercises to help the reader in their understanding of mindfulness in the Christian context.
Peter Tyler is Professor of Pastoral Theology and Spirituality at St Mary’s University, London.
