Audio Divina

Audio Divina  (Sacred Listening)

9 AM Sunday Mornings in the Sanctuary

For many of us, music is often a transcendent experience, lifting us above the worries and distractions of daily life.  You are invited into the sanctuary on Sunday mornings to hear the music as a doorway into prayer and cultivating your ability to listen with the ear of your heart. We call this audio divina, or sacred listening.  The music, carefully selected has the power to deepen contemplative prayer  and meditation.  Audio Divina can enhance the experience of sacred silence, and facilitate a receptivity to Divine encounter. Take a few moments to enter into this self guided listening practice as it offers a quality of silence that can be nourishing for body, mind and spirit.


 Community worships begins at 10:30
