In our hyper communicative and mobile world we’re more connected than ever before and yet we find it difficult to go deeper in our relationships because we’re so distracted by the constant stream of information that bombards us. Often, if we really desire to have meaningful conversations, we need to disconnect—shut off our smart phones, laptops etc—in order to connect more deeply with others. The same is true for our spiritual life. If we want to deepen our relationship with God, we need to be present in our conversation with Him. If we take Teresa of Ávila at her word, the most profound encounters with the divine are rooted in the simplest, most personal experiences. There are no experts when it comes to our relationship with God. And yet many of us still feel daunted and don’t know how to begin the conversation. The Daily Disconnect is an opportunity for contemplation everyday that is structured like a conversation you can do in less than 8 minutes via your phone, tablet, computer etc. In a sense we’re inviting you to use the most modern technology available to connect to an opportunity to disconnect from the distractions of the moment and participate in an ancient, timeless conversation with a friend.

Highly Recommended

I have been a regular listener to the Daily Disconnect for the last 4 years. It was initially a great way to get into a regular habit of daily prayer and became something of a faithful companion for me during some pretty dark times, when I was able to find some peace and constancy in my contemplative practice. Through this podcast I discovered the work of some of the Christian mystics and have been on a journey of discovery ever since. The impact the Daily Disconnect has had on my spiritual life is incalculably profound and I am grateful every day to be accompanied by the voice of Fr. Genders and, before him, Fr. Bell.

In terms of recording, the production quality of the podcast is high and follows a very simple format. I highly recommend this podcast.
