The main theme of this book is concerned, as the title declares, with spiritualising our lives, and what we as individuals can do to further that aspiration. The work is divided into two parts; the first explores the frequently misunderstood practice of meditation from a unique perspective. That is to say, it is concerned with a) developing an understanding of the core biological and psycho-dynamic factors that stand in the way of our ability to meditate, b) provides simple tried and tested guidelines, methods and techniques that enables us to recognise, understand and overcome the wide range of obstacles that confront our endeavours, and c) harnessing the extraordinary powers of our body, mind and soul.The second part, is concerned with developing a greater understanding of prayer, which for most people rarely transcends the notion of asking for a special favour from God! However, such a narrow definition of pleading for divine assistance is insufficient to describe the vital part that prayer fulfils in our intimate relationship with God, which is clearly more than begging, or plea-bargaining with divinity.Yes, clearly, we will often ask for divine assistance, especially when in a difficult place, but our relationship with God is an evolving relationship that is not limited to material and social need. The focus of the second part of the book is the central role of prayer in the life of humanity; discussing its history and roots with the purpose of developing a greater understanding of what prayer means, beyond asking for divine assistance. It also introduces useful insights concerning the traditional approach to prayer, along with techniques and traditional Christian methods and practises that have the power to enhance our prayer-life, such as Lectio Divina and Devotio Moderna.
