About a mindful writer

Hi, my name’s Lisa Caldwell. As the blog name suggests, I’m a writer who tries to incorporate mindfulness and contemplation into my life.

I’m usually to be found writing for businesses, organisations, papers and magazines but you’ll also occasionally find me writing poetry. It’s all for the love of words really, and I’m blessed that this is how I earn my living.

I learned mindfulness at Breathworks in Manchester in May-June 2014 to help me live better with chronic pain. Some days I feel it hasn’t helped me at all. But really, when I sit back and think about it, learning and practising mindfulness has made enormous changes in my approach to life. Every day I marvel at my reaction to something which in the past would have sent me into a tailspin of doom and gloom.

I also practice the Christian tradition of contemplative prayer, learning to listen to God in the silences.

This blog is about seeing how mindfulness and contemplative prayer can help my writing and contribute to me becoming healthier in mind, body and soul.

One thought on “About a mindful writer

  1. HI Lisa, I discovered your blog when I clicked on the link over at Lucy Mill’s site. I am also interested in Christian mindfulness and contemplative prayer as they are practices I’ve begun to explore over the last few months. There’s so much to be heard when we’re “learning to listen to God in the silences”. May you be blessed and encouraged in this pursuit! As an M.E and chronic illness sufferer I also understand the challenges of living with constant pain and limitations on daily life. Happy to have met you! Blessings. 🙂
