Want to reboot or radically change your prayer practice? Are you fearful or dismissive of prayer? It may be time to change the way you think about prayer. Reserve your spot for this interactive and transformative workshop today!
Join international speaker, author and interfaith minister Joran Oppelt for a fun and interactive exploration of the divine dialogue we call prayer. You will discover new prayer practices you can use in your life, discuss different types of prayer, learn prayers from various faith and religious traditions (Christian, Hindu, Jewish, Muslim, Native American). The benefits of a daily prayer practice are real, and connecting with real people to develop it can be life-changing.
HERE'S WHAT PEOPLE SAY ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP:
“I wasn’t really praying before now. I was only talking to myself.”
“We immersed ourselves in the prayer process and the energy and intention behind it. I was pushed out of my comfort zone in some deep and beautiful ways.”
“The one thing that isn’t explained very well in my [Christian] tradition is prayer. This class brought clarity to why and how we pray and so much more.”
“Joran is a dynamic teacher. You’ll be engrossed in the content from beginning to end. He thinks about religion and spirituality from different perspectives and encourages you to question what you’re learning. I left informed, evolved and excited for the next one.”
WHAT YOU RECEIVE:
• New prayer practices you can start using immediately
• Different prayers from around the world
• A deeper understanding about why prayer is necessary
• Improved dialogue and interpersonal skills
