Carrie Skarda: Creating Space for Mindfulness and Meditation as Latter-day Saints All In

    • Christianity

The Sacrament, temple worship, and prayer are all aspects of Latter-day Saint doctrine. But have you ever considered that they are also exercises in mindfulness? On this week’s episode, we discuss everything from what it means to set an intention focused on Jesus Christ to what the story of Joseph Smith teaches us about being still long enough for answers to unfold.

"One of the downsides of approaching our spiritual life and our religious faith with this sort of instant microwave mentality is that the gospel, a lot of aspects of the gospel, just don't work that way. You can't get personal revelation by asking Siri a question. And you can't order your testimony to be delivered by Amazon... these things by definition, take time to grow."
