Riley and Christopher answer one of the most frequently asked questions they get from listeners of this podcast in this episode: What is contemplation? While a definition of “contemplation” is easy enough to come by, the range of contemplative practices is vast, and the depth of experience they provide is unfathomable. Riley and Christopher give an extensive, if not exhaustive, list of contemplative practices, including more and less familiar ones, from among those they have practiced, and those they have observed. Along the way, they share powerful personal experiences of the divine from their own contemplative practices, as well as the palpable peace they have found through them–a deep abiding peace,” the peace of God, which passeth all understanding.”
