Praying With The Psalms: An Evening Of Reflection [Online]

About This Event

It has been suggested that the Book of Psalms is the prayer book of the church. With vivid imagery, the psalms express the full range of human emotions, and give us insights into God and ourselves. One commentator called the psalms "essentially a record of the human quest for God."

The psalms are meant to be prayed, not simply read. We know from the Gospels that they were prayed by Jesus, and they remain essential to the prayer of Benedictine communities and the church at large.

This evening of reflection encourages us to pray with the psalms in a way that makes them meaningful to us and that helps us deepen our experience of God. The evening will include a talk that provides background to the psalms and suggests ways to pray with them, a period of silent reflection on a psalm, and time for sharing and dialogue.

This event will take place online via Zoom.

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

My inspiration is to find some very much needed solace away from the stress of raising 4 children, working (as a dietitian) and trying to get my private nutrition counseling practice launched. I am a registered yoga instructor and have practiced for over 10 yrs, and have always dreamed of taking a yoga retreat just for my own inner well being. Linda

Retreat Guru's Vision

We believe human beings are innately wise, strong and kind. This wisdom, although not always experienced, is always present. Going on retreat is a beautiful way to reconnect to our basic sanity and health. Our aspiration at Retreat Guru is to inspire people to experience authentic retreats and reconnect with their innate wisdom, strength and kindness.
