Skills for Effective Prayer (Free, Online Teaching)

April 20 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Every spiritual system in which I’ve had the good fortune to participate over the last 25 years includes some version of a prayer practice. Methodist Christianity, Islamic Sufism, Zen Buddhism, contemporary Paganism, Lakota ways and the Native American Church, Buryat Mongolian shamanism, and West Africa Ifá/Òrìṣà tradition. Despite tremendous diversity among these approaches to the sacred, some practice of prayer has been one strong thread of continuity.

In my experience, teachings on the underlying assumptions about prayer are often not made explicit but rather embedded in communal ritual. In this free, online teaching we’ll consider foundational assumptions about prayer that recur throughout diverse traditions. The approach will be non-dogmatic and skills oriented.
