Abstract
The thesis identified how Guided Awareness experiences of spiritual reflection on preached events would enhance preaching. Guided Awareness focused on the preachers' spiritual reflection of their preaching rather than critiques or assessments. The hypothesis of the project is that preachers can transform their preaching for the common good of the Church by engaging in spiritual reflection. Research explored the call for preaching reflection. Preachers attended an introductory presentation, completed presentation surveys, participated in Guided Awareness experiences on their preaching, and completed a post-experience survey. Qualitative research gave evidence that Guided Awareness experiences of preaching are spiritually transformative for preachers.
