Shining like the Sun offers seven mindful practices–attentiveness, ordinariness, simplicity, rhythms, conversation, delight, and restoration–that guide readers to wake up to God as a living reality and to come alive in their bodies, minds, hearts, and deep in their souls. Through stories that illuminate each practice, simple observations, and tangible suggestions for how to embody each practice, readers will discover that God is hidden deep inside their own being. Whether changing diapers, stuck in traffic, or enjoying a glass of wine, we can touch God in any ordinary moment. We can always come alive. Written from a primarily Christian perspective, it draws from a variety of sources from the major world religions and will appeal to anyone who wants to cultivate mindfulness to get in touch with God as a living reality.

Excerpt from the Introduction: Finding God Where You Are
“For some of us, it may take a childlike wonder for us to believe there is a place in the depth of our hearts where our secret beauty shines like the sun. For others, it may require indulging in naïveté, or agreeing to go on a wildly unreasonable quest, or giving in to some carefully planned subterfuge. If you engage in a mindful search for God by learning to become aware and awake to where you are, you will find a peculiar gift waiting for you.”
