Do you long to move, to fill your lungs, to sing out, to more fully express the life that flows through you? Full-bodied, full-hearted, full-throated expression: this is a good way to pray. Sadly, prayer has become disembodied dry and incomprehensible to those who speak the words. But prayer is not a laundry list; prayer is an expression of our innermost yearnings, joys, and desire to feel connected to life within and around us!|
You don't have to "believe" in order to pray. The answer to our prayers is in the experience we can attain when we pray of being more fully alive.
In this workshop we awaken and embody our prayers and the prayers of our ancestors. Through movement and voice, creative improvisation, text study, and a sacred and safe environment, we will move beyond the self-consciousness that often inhibits us and we will become a praying community, joining our energy to the chorus of life that is joyously resounding throughout the universe. There are no prerequisites; physical limitations are not an obstacle. Rabbi Jonathan Kligler and Carol Fox Prescott bring decades of experience to the beautiful work of helping people to fill themselves with life, and you will be held in their safe and loving hands.
Our experience will be rich and joyous and will forever change your understanding of the power and purpose of prayer.
