Sitting still in silence to wait on the Divine to whisper messages we can then give voice and meaning to is one of many spiritual practices. Sometimes, getting quiet enough to hear inspired revelation doesn’t necessarily look like the cessation of sound and movement. In this embodied approach to prayer, we’ll be combining praise postures such as Barak, Yadah, and Towdah with music, deep reflection, and writing as a way to connect with the Divine as our dance partner, leading guide, and constant companion in life.
