Woodchester Village Hall

Leader details:

An invitation to chant together words spoken 2000 years ago, with simple movements of a kind that Jesus and early disciples may have used as their body prayer. Singing in Aramaic, the native language of Jesus, there is the chance for these words, perhaps familiar as the Our Father, to resonate in the body. Many find this allows fresh new meanings and above all an embodied knowing to surface from these ancient words.

Come and join us on a rich journey that may encompass, among other things, the wish to feel connected to the bigger picture of life, to others, the wish for a sense of purpose, to remember what’s important, to let go of what is no longer useful. How can an embodied experience of an ancient practice be a resource as we face the environmental, societal and personal challenges of our time?
