PRAYER OF HEART AND BODY

PRAYER OF HEART AND BODY
                   
                       3 Tuesdays, 1 Monday – January 10, 17, 23, 31
                                         5:45pm -7:15pm

                  The Paulist Center, 5 Park St, Boston  (Auditorium)   

Meditation and yoga have gone mainstream and courses are available at many fitness or health centers. What distinguishes this one is that both are taught in a Christian context with an eye towards helping participants realize  a positive integration of these practices in their Christian prayer life and spirituality. In addition to other benefits like becoming calm, relaxed, and centered, meditation (prayer of the heart) and yoga (prayer of the body) offer  a way into an encounter with God in inner quietude. You’ll go home from your workday unusually relaxed and peaceful!

Participants will learn the basics of Christian meditation/centering prayer,   a range of yoga postures, and yoga posture-flows to songprayers. No experience required. The invitation is to a refreshing and powerful way of praying with the whole of your being: body, mind, heart and spirit.

 Wear light, comfortable clothing. If you have a mat, bring it; if not, there are some mats available.

 Instructor: Fr. Thomas Ryan, CSP, a certified yoga instructor and author of numerous books on spirituality, including Prayer of Heart and Body: Meditation and Yoga as Christian Spiritual Practice, and the DVD Yoga Prayer.                              
         Cost: $48   Students: $24
