Read in March, 2011

Rex Ambler is a Quaker who wanted to go back to early Quakers, to study how they came to be so sure of God's presence that they risked their life and liberty by standing for the truths they believed. He found his study showed him a method of contemplation that stripped him of his ego, and brought strength and purpose into his life. In talking to others about this method he heard about the psychotherapeutic method called "focusing" developed by Eugene Gendlin (wikipedia link here), which is similar, but without the spiritual aspect of Quaker meditation.

I found the whole thing fascinating, and hope that using his method will really help me in Quaker meeting for worship to quiet my chaotic and uncontrolled innner voice.
