EMBODIED PRAYERS

Sundays in May, 10:35 a.m. - 10:50 a.m.

In May we will be exploring Embodied Prayers. This theme explores the use of our bodies and/or body-focused imagery in prayer to invoke various experiences of gratitude, compassion, love, and peace. Embodied prayers use things such as gentle movements, breathwork, guided imagery, sensory experiences, or tools such as a labyrinth. Lori Sweet and Elizabeth Terry will alternate leadership during the month to offer 4 different embodied prayer experiences.

Lori also will be leading a longer Embodied Prayer experience in the Adult Forum on May 20. She will teach the Universal Dance of Peace (The Seven Point Movement Meditation.) Attendees will have the option to join in or observe and hold space for the movement. Join us!
