Resting in God. The ultimate way to be present

I am so thankful for this beginners guide to a very different way of meditation that i have never experienced before. It’s sweetness and healing words made me cry at first, then experience a different way of living day to day. It helped me to open my heart.

James Finlay

This gave me a silence and a stillness that I have rarely found, and something I often long for. Beautiful!
