Should Christians Meditate? Introducing a new course in Bible-based meditation

Dear BibleDice Friends:

I am excited to announce the release of my new video course, Meditation for Christians and offer the special discounted price of 9.99 for BibleDice users (normally 49.99).

You Can Fully Embrace the Benefits of Meditation While Staying True to Your Own Beliefs. Meditation is often misunderstood as either a non-spiritual mental health practice or a mysterious ritual belonging to Eastern religions. In fact,  Meditation, and the related practices of contemplative prayer and “lectio divina” have been part of Christianity from the beginning. This course covers the theory and practice of meditation in a Biblical or Christian worldview. Using key Biblical passages as your guide, you will learn how to cultivate greater peace and wisdom in your life as you impress the word of God deep into your heart and mind. For a sample of my guided meditations, visit my youtube channel.

Daily meditation is a powerful tool to transform our lives and cultivate greater peace and wisdom.  In our modern life, we are too often stressed out, over-scheduled, and unfocused. In fact, it seems life conspires to keep us in this state of unrest. However, Jesus Christ said, “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” The spiritual life should not one of constant anxiety and fear and reactivity.

By the end of this course, you will: 

-Understand the basics of mindfulness meditation.

-Be able to practice the specific practice Christian or Biblical meditation.

-Understand the ancient practice of “lectio divina” or “divine reading” of scripture.

-Use a Biblical approach to “mindfulness” and “non-attachment” to be less reactive and fearful.

-Feel a greater sense of peace and devotion to God as you begin to meditate.

FREE BONUS: Get started right away with 8 free guided meditations from my popular YouTube channel, Meditations on the Mount. These downloadable MP3 files comprise the complete collection of my CD, Meditations on the Mount, an $8 value.

I am not anybody’s guru and I don’t claim any special enlightenment. However, I have been practicing and teaching meditation for about 10 years, to school groups and community organizations. I have learned a few things along the way and am eager guide you in learning a practice that has been a blessing in my life!

Below are a few of the comments from my YouTube channel and Amazon regarding my guided meditations, which reflect the method taught in this course:

“I could feel my entire body so relaxed, careful, and as if I was floating, all anxiety and tension gone and I was able to feel where love was lacking a little bit in certain relationships and I will strive to love more. Gods presence is great in this meditation I feel physically and mentally changed. Thank you!” – Amy Leak

“All your meditations are wonderful and brought so much peace into my life. Blessings to you.” Michely Deana

“You have the most beautiful voice and presence. Thank you for doing what you do. Your meditations are so centering, uplifting and transforming.” -Christine Clear

“Very nice. Soothing background music and such a soothing voice of the narrator. I love listening to Scripture being read. A great way to de-stress and focus on God’s Word.” -Amazon Review

  1. I would like to send you an email. (I need to request your permission to use your meditations in a dissertation study I am conducting.) Where may I send the request?

    Thank you!

    P.S. I am sorry if this is a public post – I don’t know of any other way to contact you…all my other attempts have failed.


  2. Hello! I am an Orthodox Christian who converted from fasle beliefs from last year. I STRONGLY URGE AND WARN CHRSITIANS REGARDING MEDITATION AND ITS DANGERS.

    I engaged in such practices for two years, however, I progressively become more prideful, isolated, and less caring of others. Once I had a very bad demonic experience while doing such a practice and renounced it compeltetly. I got an exorcism peroformed became a Christian and my life has changed for the better ever since.

    I highly recommend googling the dangers of Yoga and Mediation as it is something completely foreign to the West and only leads to disasters in life!

    God bless!
