Jane Tomaine is Abbess of the Feline Cloister. An Episcopal priest and retreat leader, she is also author of two books on The Rule of St. Benedict.

Purpose of the Tool:  To bring the ideas shared in the article “Living from the Spiritual Heart” into daily life.

Background on the Tool:  In the Tilden Edwards provides clear direction on ways that we can fashion our spiritual practices to have a better awareness of the presence of God in our lives and to live from that Presence.  This tool encourages each of us to try out these practices.  The practices he offers and that are described in the article are

Awakening to God
Remembering Our Desire for God Throughout the Day
Cultivating Open Hopefulness
Practicing Any of the Classical Spiritual Disciplines
Finding Resting Places Throughout the Day

The Tool:  Decide on a day or a week or any time period that seems right to you and begin one of the practices shared by Edwards as described in my article.  Then try another one.  To reach the article, “Living from the Spiritual Heart” click here
