The Reverend Dr. Kendrick D. Weaver spends much of his time exploring the depths and dimensions of simplicity, silence, biblical meditation and prayer. His travels and research on Christian spirituality in Africa, Latin America and the Middle East have led him to deeper understandings of the spiritual path.

Reverend Weaver leads workshops and classes for the Sleeping with God Meditation Center, a 501c3 non-profit organization, which he founded (www.sleepingwithgod.org). His calling is to educate and train churches, communities, and individuals in the Christian contemplative life. As a certified hypnotist and as a meditation instructor, Rev. Weaver uses his training to facilitate holistic healing. He studied philosophy at American University and went on to receive his Master of Divinity from Harvard Divinity School. He holds a Doctorate in Christian Spirituality from Washington Theological Union and is an adjunct faculty member at Virginia Theological Seminary. Rev. Weaver is an ordained elder in The United Methodist Church and the pastor of Union United Methodist Church in Upper Marlboro, MD. He is the author of five books.
