Move beyond self-limiting beliefs about spoken prayer to connect to the Divine with your own unique and powerful voice. While many people are comfortable engaging in a private conversation with the Sacred, the idea of praying out loud can sometimes be intimidating. What if the Divine doesn’t care about the words we use? What if our relationship with the Beloved is enriched when we show up as our most authentic selves, speaking the words that are most true to us? Pray Like The Poets is an experiential workshop on the art of spoken prayer - all faiths (and no faith) are welcome. Together, in the safety of community and with a sense of wonder, we will immerse ourselves in poetry and sacred writings from across traditions and time to help us create our own unique expressions of prayer. We will discuss the different ways of addressing the Mystery and begin our journey by reading aloud pieces that resonate with our individual hearts. As we feel called, we will move into sharing our own prayerful words. Our class will meet exclusively online. Please bring a journal, your favorite poems and sacred writings, a candle to light during our time together, and your sense of curiosity.
