To be eirenic is to be aimed at peace, oriented toward reconciling. But a need for reconciliation implies conflict, distress. So is it ironic that I am not peace when I am being eirenic?


We are often offended by an alternative viewpoint. It is especially difficult when the person suggesting this other worldview is forceful, unyielding in delivering it. Very few are convinced by such an approach.


This podcast teaches mindfulness practices that can be used in everyday, real-life experience, as a guide to developing a habit of mindfulness – one that is more than just an exercise, but one that seeps into your day. My hope is that we will grow together in becoming better at listening to each other, hearing the heart of someone different than me, than you, more willing to hold our thoughts and opinions loosely – in the presence of one another, in awe and wonder in the presence of the More Than.
