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 this Body Prayer has become a key part of our daily practice in Beloved Life, wherever we are, wherever we go.

Here we’re showing the prayer in a story-board fashion, with images from the top of Dun I on Iona – a much prayed-in place. 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…
