Prayer of the Heart and Body

With Fr. Tom Ryan

Meditation and yoga have gone mainstream, with courses available at many fitness and/or health centers. Still, it is not unusual for Christian practitioners to be told by someone that they should not be engaging in these practices. In this mini-retreat, both yoga and meditation are taught with an eye towards helping participants realize a positive integration of these practices into their Christian prayer life and spirituality. They will be led in an experience of yoga (prayer of the body) and meditation (prayer of the heart) through yoga posture flows as embodied prayers that offer a way into a peaceful encounter with God in meditation.

A mini-retreat day led by Fr. Tom Ryan, a certified yoga instructor and author of the books Prayer of Heart and Body: Meditation and Yoga as Christian Spiritual Practice; Reclaiming the Body in Christian Spirituality and the DVD Yoga Prayer.

February 2, 9:15 AM-3:30 PM
