In this series we will explore physical presence and movement in worship. While the sessions will be primarily experiential, we will reflect on how the body has been used and understood in the Bible and in the history of Christianity. This will provide a context for a practice of embodied prayer. Our practice will include postures of the body as prayer, and sequences of postures to prayer songs, and sitting in stillness.
We will draw on the depth of understanding offered by the ancient tradition of yoga as a devotional practice and as a means of releasing the restlessness of the body to prepare the mind to be still that it may hear the voice of God.
