The goal of The Faith-ing Project is to enrich your spiritual life. Our hope is that this might be a gymnasium for the soul; a library for the spirit; and a toy store for the psyche.
Please continue to the bottom of this page for spiritual practices. These are the main focus of this site and can be found on this page.
I recently had the distinct pleasure of sharing some of these practices on the Contemplative Light Podcast. Click the link and give it a listen!
‘Discovering the Essence: How to Build a Spiritual Practice When Your Religion is Cracking Apart’ has been released! I am so excited to be able to share this with you.
On January 14, at 7 PM EST, we will begin a free exploration of the topics in the book. Every two weeks we will meet and connect with each other, try out a spiritual practice, and hear from special guests. For more information about ‘Discussing the Essence’ click here.
There are several noticeable differences between this book and the faith-ing project guides which have been released previously: First, this is not a self-published book. It will have an ISBN and be featured alongside the excellent work that Anamchara is doing. Secondly, while this larger book will feature about two dozen spiritual practices, the majority of the book will be in the format of a traditional nonfiction book.

I would also like to draw your attention to a couple other authors with upcoming releases from Anamchara. This is a fine example of the work of Justin Couts, of In Search of New Eden. He has written one of the essays in an upcoming book on what the Celtic Christian has to say about racism.
Richard Lewis has a book on Centering Prayer coming out in August entitled ‘Sitting With God: a Journey to Your True Self Through Centering Prayer.‘ His website can be found here.
We have just released episode number 2 of ‘The Open a Hand: A Faith-ing Project Podcast.” Listen to that here.
Work has been temporarily suspended on the upcoming Faith-ing Project Guide on spiritual practices specific to the nine Enneagram types. Samples of spiritual practices assigned to each of the nine types can be foundhere.
