Praying with Jesus

Thursday, April 20, 2023 9:30 AM to 3:30 PM

The prayer that is commonly known as The Lord's Prayer is one that many memorized as young children. Even though we may recite it often in church as adutls, there is more to this prayer than our English translations have to offer. When approached from its Aramaic roots, the Prayer of Jesus reveals a vision and path of following in the way of Jesus that is both inspiring and imminently practical.

Drawing upon the work of Neil Douglas-Klotz and using a balance of teaching, chanting, sacred movement, guided meditation and Centering Prayer, this Day Apart Retreat is intended as an introduction to this deeper work -- allowing retreatants to enter into a deeper relationship — both with the Prayer of Jesus and following in the way of Jesus.

Cost: $79 for program and lunch
