Lil’ Bits of Heaven
A three-session class, that can be taken in part or as a whole:
May 11 ~ The Sonic Trilogy of Love: The Sound of God
Making a joyful noise, we’ll explore together the sound of God through extended chanting of the Hindu Gayatri in Sanskrit, known as the Mother of all mantras, and Jesus Prayer in Old Slavonic from the Eastern Orthodox tradition. In the silence that follows, may we hear what we have known not. Handouts will be provided to all who’ve registered by the day before the workshop.
May 18th ~ The Somatic Trilogy of Love: The Body of God
To explore the body as the temple of God, I’ll guide you in simple movements adopted from some of our favorite circle dances. No dance experience necessary or a large space needed. Here we’ll combine both the sound and body in our prayer and, in the silence that follows, stand still in the wonder of God.
May 25th ~ The Spirit Trilogy of Love: The Essence of God
It is said that all things have a song—if we can hear it. I’ll guide you on a journey to what is known as the Middle World in Shamanic practice, the spirit side of our beloved creation here in which we all live. You’ll learn how to hear the song, the voice, of the stones, trees, and dragonflies. And, upon returning, you’ll have experienced, for yourself, your oneness with all things.
