Peace on Earth
Christmas Contemplative Experience
From greeting cards and Christmas carols to a theme of Advent and words throughout the pages of scripture announcing the impact of the birth of Jesus, ‘Peace on Earth’ is something we are familiar with hearing this joyful time of year.
What does it mean to us, individually and as a collective, when Jesus is called ‘Prince of Peace’ and his birth is announced by the angels to be bringing peace? Could peace be more than an interior, individual, silent, calm feeling? Could this peace be wholeness, restoration and active?
At Peace on Earth, a Christmas Contemplative Experience, through contemplative practices including yoga asana movement, breath prayer, imaginative prayer, and journaling, we will explore our own experiences and understandings of Peace and what it means for Jesus to be the Prince of Peace bringing Peace on Earth and what it looks like for us to engage in peace-making.

From Breath Prayer, Imaginative Prayer, Journaling and Movement, we engage in practices that give us space to become aware of the presence of God revealed all around us, to intentionally spend time being with God, and to enjoy the presence of the Divine. It’s a space of attentive ‘be-ing’ as we explore our theme of Peace.
There will be ample time to connect with those in attendance including sharing as large and small groups. Your ticket includes a drink (kombucha or light beer) from Low Life Barrel House and drinks are only $6 if you want to stay after and keep connecting with those you came with or met!
Yoga is a spiritual discipline that has the ability to connect body, mind and spirit in a beautiful way that can result in a deeper understanding and acceptance of self, can draw you deeper to God and has the ability to facilitate an embodied spiritual discipline you may find yourself coming back to again and again.
