Spiritual Growth

Meditation is a very special method of praying. Prayer is bringing your mind, soul and spirit to God’s presence, to God Almighty himself. In a regular prayer, you use words to articulate your thoughts (out loud or silently). But when you meditate, instead of using your voice, you use your imagination – thoughts inside your mind. There is also different, not well know, but extremely powerful Spoken Meditation, which I prefer the most due to amazing results.

ONLINE Dreamwork Evenings - Jan. 20, 2022

The Island of Dreams

Director (s): 

Sr. Ita Connery, FCJ

Date:

Every dream, rising out of the unconscious soul, is a voice of God coming to us from the deep centre where we are ever living in the Sacred Presence of our Creator. Like Jacob in Genesis 21, we can say each time we awake from a dream, “Truly God is in this place.. This is nothing less that a house of God, this is the gate of heaven.” Such is our approach to the dream. It is a tool among many others to help us hear what God might be saying in any given situation. Come to be amazed at the beauty and wisdom of your own soul and to receive tools to help you amplify your dreams.
