Contemplation is a way to hear with the Spirit and not with the head. Contemplation is the search for a wide open space. This space is broad enough for the head to have room in it; it’s broad enough for the heart, the feelings, the gut, the subconscious, our memories, our institutions, for our whole body. We need a holistic place for hearing. Christians have to go to this place if they’re looking for wisdom. If we don’t produce any more wise men and women, then the reason is that we have forgotten the art of contemplation. ~Fr. Richard Rohr, ofm
