Friday Favorites is a series where I share my favorite finds and discoveries from the week, all centered on spirituality and intention in travels and daily life.
As I mentioned in Monday’s post, I’ve spent the past week in Tucson, Arizona training at the Hesychia School of Spiritual Direction. I’ll be here through next Friday, February 14th, so as you can imagine, with the content we’re exploring and the vista that surrounds me, I’ve been pretty immersed in the world of contemplative spirituality.
So for this week’s edition of Friday Favorites, I thought I’d invite you to join me in my exploration by sharing some of my favorite videos on contemplative spirituality from Gravity: A Center for Contemplative Activism. If you find your contemplative heart stirring inside of you, they also have a great list of contemplative practices and suggestions for what they call “a starter library for contemplative activists.” (I love anything that encourages me to add to my book collection!)

If you appreciate the work of Gravity Center, consider supporting them financially here. They also have two Solidarity Pilgrimages coming up—a perfect way to go deeper in your journey in knowing God, self, and the stories of others around the world.
On Monday I shared my thoughts (and fears) on entering the desert of contemplation and beginning my training in spiritual direction.
On Wednesday I started a new series called Wander Wednesday and talked about the desert and its pilgrim appeal.
Thursday we heard from our new Pilgrim in Residence for February, Mallory Larsen. Mallory is a writer, teacher, and meaning-maker, and will be sharing with us about her recent mini-sabbatical. This week she talked about the power of reflection and marking moments in our everyday journeys.
How have you practiced spirituality and intention in your travels and daily life this past week?
