Contemplative Prayer

Abba-Imma, Lord’s Prayer

The Abba-Imma Prayer invokes and honors Abba-Imma, Father-Mother God, the Universal Spirit, while harvesting sources of Chi in the heavens, environment, and earth. It is grounded in the Taoist and Traditional Chinese Medicine principles of Yin and Yang, the Macrocosmic Orbit, and the chakras. It invites us to look at the meanings and origins of the words of the Lord’s Prayer in a new and historically discerning way. It is founded on the teachings of the past, engages the witnessing awareness of the now, and sparks the creative potential reaching toward what is yet to come.

Icons—windows to the soul

Icons come to us from the Greek and Russian Orthodox traditions.  They are visual prayers.  Icons are not paintings—they are windows to the soul.

Just gaze on the image, especially the eyes when appropriate, and let your heart rest.

These ancient and contemporary saints are meant to serve as pathways for our soul’s connection with God.
