Prayer vs. Mindfulness

A Q&A with Kelly Boys on prayer

View Transcript
[Kelly Boys, Mindfulness Trainer] - I would say prayer is a little bit different from mindfulness. Mindfulness is that process of non-judgmentally bringing attention to your experience in any given moment. And you can do that prayerfully, you can do that in a contemplative way that is similar to prayer. But I would say prayer is more relational. Prayer is connecting with God, and prayer is saying, I'm aware of what is in my experience mindfully, and I'm connecting with my relationship with God to interact with my life and to receive the grace that's here for me. And so mindfulness tends to be a self-directed process where you look at your experience and then prayer for me is that relational. It's totally relational, very relational with God or spirit.
