Contemplative Prayer: Teaching

Desert Spirituality in the Lenten Season

Who were the desert mothers and fathers of ancient times? Why did they seek such solitude, and what can we learn from them today? Join us Tuesday evenings in Lent as we discuss the article Blurring the Boundaries: Paradox in the Spirituality of the Desert Mothers and Fathers. We’ll learn more about these desert elders and the wisdom they offer us.

For the season of Lent, we will also offer gentle movement at 6:30 PM in the narthex with yoga instructor Roberta Strickler. No mat, equipment or special clothing is needed. Come experience how gentle movement can serve as an energy releasing, calming bridge into your meditation at 7 PM!

For more information, email Kimberlee Peifer, Associate for Contemplative Prayer & Practices.
