Exploring Meditation, Prayer and Presence online course

date to be announced

Participants in this course will experiment with a variety of different kinds of meditation and prayer and share their experiences with one another. We will talk about what prayer is, and also about how it can help us find greater peace, hear the spiritual guidance available within, and be channels of grace for others and the world.  With one another, in pairs and small groups, we will also explore practices for being present to one another, Spirit, God, and the divine truth that wants to be revealed.  Text: A Listening Spirituality, part 1, Patricia Loring, and others.
