From the Publication
As a social work professor, around the year 2004 I started introducing some instruction about meditation to MSW students in my practice courses at the University of Mississippi. Most of my students were faith-based. That stimulated my thinking about the issues and variances concerning faith-based versus non-faith-based meditation.
For faith-based meditators, it is possible to consider that there is a common pathway for meditation and prayer. In other words, meditation and prayer can converse and travel together as complementary and mutually enhancing companions.
