The Urban Well at Saint James

A source for contemplative practices

The Urban Well at Saint James is a downtown Lancaster source for contemplative prayer and practices to refresh and meet the needs of people seeking a more life-sustaining way.

At the Urban Well, diverse people with different faiths gather in a spirit of humility and openness. We learn from experts, experienced practitioners and from one another how to quiet the noise of everyday life and how to find both energy, serenity and rest.

Together with our local, regional and national partners we welcome all who thirst for a deeper relationship with people, with the planet and with God to the Urban Well.

Mindful Yoga with Louise Konrath

Yoga and mindfulness are closely associated. Yoga is typically considered a practice of physical postures; and mindfulness is the mental practice of paying attention in the present moment. The aim of both, and when used together, is to achieve a higher level of connection between the mind, body, and spirit.
