Movement and Meditation: Deepen your Practice with Centering Prayer
This three-week sampler introduces Centering Prayer into a gentle yoga class. Each class will begin with meditation education, highlighting the intersections between Centering Prayer and yoga. A short practice of gentle yoga (asana) follows the education segment, and class will conclude with time for Centering Prayer. This sampler series is progressive with longer periods of silent Centering Prayer, and less meditation education, each week. Centering Prayer may be done seated on the floor or in a chair, but you’ll also want your mat for asana movement. The weekly educational themes are:
Week 1 – Attention (dharana)
Week 2 – Intention (dhyana)
Week 3 – Contemplation (samadhi)
Upon registration you will receive a ticket with a Zoom invitation link on it. Please save this link for admission to class for all 3 weeks. Thank you!
Please note, This class meets at 7:00 pm Central Daylight Saving Time.
