Cathedral Nights: Embodied Prayer

Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin 8

Cathedral Nights: Embodied Prayer

Quieting the body and focusing on the breath is a way of bringing our attention into the present. Each moment becomes an invitation to know God’s presence. Using gentle movement we will explore a sequence of seated stretches to release tension from the neck and shoulders, followed by standing and walking. Maintaining awareness of body and breath, we will explore how each step, each breath and each moment can help us open to God’s presence. The evening will also include the opportunity, to walk the labyrinth in the cathedral grounds.
The session will be led by Emma Fitzgerald. Emma is a parishioner and youth group leader in St Patrick’s Greystones. Formerly a professional contemporary dancer, she has performed in the Cathedral as part of its creative Lenten reflection programme. She aims to do all things to the glory of God and to use her dance experience to create shared pathways into prayer.
