About Into Deeper Waters
“these recorded meditations are just what people need to guide them into deeper levels of prayer”
Reverend Mother, Holy Cross Convent
Purpose and Presentation
IntoDeepWaters encourages busy people to slow down through stillness & meditation.
The meditations and reflections here are each designed to enable you to be still in God’s presence. I believe that in these divine encounters you will be refreshed and your life will be slowly transformed.
All the meditations are pre-recorded, so you can just sit down and listen! They are perfect for both individuals and groups.
- Like a coffee shop with small, medium or large cups, the resources are presented in various sizes, depending on how much time is available to you!
- The short meditations are like a ‘small cup’, each lasts approximately ten minutes.
- The long meditations (our ‘medium cup’) last approximately twenty minutes each.
- For extended (‘large cup’) reflections look at the Sea Salt series and the Written Reflections. These can be used daily over a two week period or used as a basis for an extended time of quiet reflection.
Against the backdrop of our increasingly busy lifestyles an interest in spirituality, meditation and retreats is growing. Over many decades Dorinda Miller has committed herself to the wisdom and practices of these ancient ways; and she has blessed countless others through leading them in the practices of silence, solitude and soul-care.
Back in 1978, Dorinda was introduced to meditation and retreats by the author, speaker, retreat leader and counsellor: Joyce Huggett. Dorinda had the privilege of being part of Joyce’s original listening group, as described in her book ‘Listening to God’.
Stillness and silence, spiritual direction, meditation and retreats have continued to play a part in Dorinda’s journey of faith ever since. She has been a regular visitor at the Convent of the Holy Cross since 1980 and she has been leading Quiet Days and retreats across denominations both here in the UK, and overseas in the Middle East and Asia.
For over two decades Dorinda has offered various forms of spiritual accompaniment and spiritual direction. This includes: 20 years of co-leading the ‘Staying in the Vine‘ course (covering prayer, meditation and other spiritual disciplines), leading meditations for a bi-monthly meditation group, and regularly contributing to the Bible Reading Fellowship publication ‘Quiet Spaces’.
Professionally, Dorinda worked as a speech and language therapist and as a consultant developmental psychologist both in the UK and in Bangladesh. She has served her local community in various ways over the years including serving as Governor at the local Junior School. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends, going for walks, pilates, and rug-making!
“In these days of increased complex and busy lives, cluttered with messaging, sound, media and digital interruptions, we need help finding stillness and peace.
The words of these meditations combined with Dorinda’s voice will draw you gently into God’s presence. There you will encounter Jesus and be drawn by his Spirit, into deeper intimacy with Him.
These meditations have been tried and tested over many years. They have proven to be a life changing resource to many people in the life of our church”

“Christian meditation reclaims spirituality in relation to Christ, its true focus and end. Dorinda’s prayerful reflections allow Jesus to speak directly to one’s heart and to be fed by Him and His Word. There is something for the beginner and the long practiced disciple here!”
Fr Graham Ricketts, Catholic Diocese of Arundel and Brighton
“These meditations are just what people starting out on their Christian journey need to guide them into deeper levels of prayer. I particularly like the Welsh – Ffald-y-Brenin audio mediation.”

“Into Deeper Waters is an opportunity to be renewed, restored and refreshed. The Lord will remind you of things you knew but forgot, reinforce what you know and reveal new things to you so you can go deeper with him.”
