Mindfully Mormon is a space for Latter-day Saints and those influenced by Latter-day Saint theology and doctrine to share their ideas and experiences with mindfulness and meditative practices from diverse disciplines. In addition to welcoming general comments about these practices, we specifically invite contributions that explore the overlap between Eastern ways of thinking and LDS teachings. Ultimately, we represent an informal community of individuals who are interested in exploring the gospel of Jesus Christ through this unique and remarkable alternative cultural lens of Eastern mindfulness/contemplative practice: Could a mindful lens change how we think about (or experience) prayer, scriptures, revelation, service, ‘doing your home teaching,’ the creation and fall, and the Savior Himself? We think so…but we’re not completely sure. We’re just enjoying the exploration…moment, by moment.
If you have something to contribute or offer this exploration, we would welcome your comments, no matter your background or perspective. Contact Jacob (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you would like to submit something or request becoming a regular contributor to the blog.
