Body Prayer

With Julie Ann Horras and Meredith Robbins

August 16 - 18, 2024

Looking for asilence with zip?

Body Prayer retreat will satisfy your need for peaceful solitude at the beautiful Center for Benedictine Life and give opportunity to experience a fulfilling way to pray with your whole BEING!

Several years ago presenters Julie Ann Horras and Meredith Robbins felt body prayer like a thunderbolt while sharing Sr. Agnes Reichlin’s Tai Chi based Body Prayer. They now feel called to carry forward this powerful prayer form.

The method combines prayerful thoughts with breath and gentle moves. Often this brings a heightened awareness of the Holy Spirit moving within and all around us. Then we feel how the answers to our questions are within and all around us.

The retreat plan is to eat meat free, as much as possible, to move outdoors, as often as possible, to keep time and space for personal reflection, and to ‘take delight in the Lord’ together.
