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 scrolling down for spiritual practices. These are the main focus of this site and can be found on this page.
Exciting News: In mid-October, Anamchara books will be publishing ‘Discovering the Essence: How to Grow a Spiritual Practice When Your Religion is Cracking Apart’ 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.
Would you like to join our next free email campaign? In late September, we will begin the Discovering the Essence email series. These exclusive previews of the upcoming book will be reformatted. Each day will feature a few reflections and a spiritual practice. All participants in the campaign will be eligible for a free copy of a faith-ing project publication. (for every 15 participants in the campaign, one book will be given away in a live event from the faith-ing project page.) To participate in this, click the ‘contact’ link above.
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.
