Contemplative spirituality is the teaching that spiritual growth and true spirituality occur by contemplation not of Scripture or even of scriptural themes, but contemplation of God through emptying your mind.  Keywords: Mysticism, contemplative spirituality, spiritual transformation, sacred-pathways, contemplative prayer, meditation, lectio-divina, soaking, transcendental meditation, breath prayer, centering prayer, hesychastic prayer, silence, labyrinths, cloud of unknowing.
