body prayer

 We are really interested in finding ways to bring physicality to our prayers, so that our praying becomes more than words and more than silence (as important as they both are.) We also want to discover ways for some of the key texts of the tradition to seep into us and stay with us – so that perhaps we begin somehow to live them.

The Beatitudes may represent the very core of Jesus’ teachings and wisdom for the world, and our Body Prayer You are the Light of the World has become a key part of our daily practice in Beloved Life, wherever we are, wherever we go.

Details of the prayer with reflective text and images from the top of Dun I on Iona are now available to download from Proost. We  allow ourselves to flow from stance to stance and to flow within each stance, finding the words of the Beatitudes taking on a physical nature, allowing our prayers or yearnings to emerge. Do let us know how you get on…

    Hi Ian, Having problems with Proost trying to download You are the Light of the world. When click ‘cart’ nothing happens. Is there any other way to get hold of these reflections? God bless.

      hi Les thanks for letting me know. Before I contact Proost can you please check this – click add to cart, then go to the top right of the page and check the cart. The download should be there, if not we will work out what the issue is. Please give that a go and let me know what happens…
      Thanks and peace to you

        Thanks Ian – have tried clicking add to cart a 100 times! Nothing happens. No cart or shopping trolley appears at top right, or download . If only.

          Sorry to hear that Les. I’m about to email Proost and will copy you into that as we attempt to sort the issue. Peace, Ian
