The examen is an ancient prayer practice that enables you to find God in your daily life.

A beautiful way to end each day. Particularly helpful if your mind tends to wander in the silence because Fr. Martin’s voice gently brings you back to the heart of the experience.

Smooth, unforced, genuine guided reflection over the day. Not too slow for my attention span. A regular tone of voice. Love the piano.
