Lectio Divina Workshop
(All Event Times Listed are Central Standard Time)
Sewanee, TN 37375
Lectio Divina literally means “divine reading”. It is an ancient practice of praying the Scriptures. During the prayer period, the pray-er listens to a brief passage with “the ear of the heart” in conversation with God. In this one day workshop participants will learn how to practice Lectio Divina, as well as hearing something of its history in the Christian tradition. They will also be given an opportunity to experience the process. As with Centering Prayer, Lectio Divina leads to contemplative prayer. Unlike Centering Prayer, thoughts, images, and insights are fostered as steps to intimacy with God. Both are part of the transformation process, restoring the one praying to union with God.
Lunch is provided. Partial scholarships available – contact Reservations Office for application, Reservations@stmaryssewanee.org or 931-598-5342.
