Infusing Movement Into Prayer In Response To God's Word
Led by John West, Obl. OSB, B.A., M.Ed., M.A.,

Speech is one-third or less of the process of communication. Gesture completes the meaning of our words. Similarly, the infusion of gesture and movement into our prayerful dialogue with God can help us stretch into becoming the people that the Gospels call us to be. God's words and our prayers can become the fleshed out realities of our lives. Come experience and learn the power of prayerful movement in this interactive workshop led by the Director of the Valyermo Dancers.

Please find the gesture prayers that were demonstrated at the workshop for: 

God is a Verb and Lord Above:

Our Father, The Doxology, and You Raise Me Up
