    Axiom Rhythm & Resources Handbook

    This handbook is particularly nice to have in it’s spiral-binded hard copy version because, as you can tell from the Ebook version it contains many helpful resources that are good to always have on hand, for example; Christian Mantras, A contemplative-sourced prayer model and the Prayer of Examen, and explanations of our last four rhythms of formation, etc.
