On Earth as it is in Heaven
Retreat Day : October 14th
Daily Practice of Prayer-in-the-body led by Dr Kent Hoffman
Human life on earth has sometimes been called “the great separation.” It speaks to our separation from a sense of full belonging, one that many of us intuit was—and still could be—our home.
Meditation and prayer practice offer the option of claiming dual citizenship something Christians recognize as living “on earth as it is in heaven”), the gift of recognizing hidden resource in the midst of pain and separation.
This seminar will be an exploration of the dynamic interface between heaven and earth as prayer-in-the-body. Utilizing both presentation and guided body-centered meditation techniques, we will spend the day meeting our shared struggle with graceful tools of sacred practice. This day is designed to provided support to those who already have a spiritual practice and inspiration to those who may be seeking.
