Meditation and Prayer: Playing Two Cans and a String with God

Peanut butter and jelly. Pen and paper. The Captain and Tenille.

Some things just work better as a pair.

It’s been said that prayer is talking to God, and meditation is listening. There are endless ways to pray and endless ways to meditate — the important thing is to cultivate a practice. 

True meditation is more than deep relaxation (although that’s a common side effect). True meditation practices train our minds to move to a deeper state of awareness. It is in that deeper state of awareness that we experience our connection to God, and in that deeper state of awareness we can hear that still, small voice that is the response to our prayers.

We know that God is still speaking. Do you have ears to hear? 

Join Barbara Holbrook for this 4-part course in active meditation and prayer, wherein we’ll explore techniques to practice accessing that deeper state of awareness and become attuned to the voice that resides within us all. 

The first 3 classes will involve learning active mediation techniques and exploring how they create space for God. The 4th class will combine all of the techniques into a longer meditation & prayer and include an opportunity to review and share.

No prior meditation experience is necessary; likewise, if you’ve been meditating for 5 minutes or 50 years you will find much to explore in this practice. All that you need is an open mind, a faithful heart, and a willingness to play with God.
