Soul Link Retreat

Soul Link Retreat

Prayer: What is it? How do I do it? Why Should I Bother?

As they pursue the longings of their soul many people leave behind the traditional doctrines and practices of their faith family; prayer is sometimes a casualty of this leave-taking. Because our spiritual evolution often involves
the “death of God” as we used to understand “Him,” and because prayer is often considered a form of communication with God, traditional forms of prayer
may seem meaningless. If God is no longer considered a Supreme Being who responds to our needs, what is the point of praying?
Although many no longer bother praying, some have taken up the challenge to
find new ways of thinking about and practicing prayer. Meditation/ contemplation has replaced petition/praise/thanksgiving as a form of prayer for those who think of themselves as spiritual seekers. Prayer for them is less about communication and more a matter of communion – being present to the One with whom we are one.
Our retreat will offer the opportunity to reflect on the notion of prayer and dialogue with others who have found or are searching for meaningful ways to pray.
