Embody the spirit of Advent:

Open to the indewelling of Emmanuel and waiting for the incarnation of God's love.


Enter the mystery, power, and rhythm of your body in worship.  Yoga sequences to sung prayers including "A Voice Cries Out" by Lloyd Larson. We will slow down to the deepest rhythms of our breath and sit in meditation.
Some previous experience of yoga is recommended but not required. All poses can be modified to accommodate anyone.  Discover how opening your body can deepen your relationship with God.

Please bring a symbol of your intention for your weekend refuge to place on the prayer table in the practice room. And IF you have them, a sticky mat and a meditation cushion.
