Journey through Lent on a path of sacred seeing. We’ll explore practices to deepen our experience of the Divine.
Through the reflections, practices, quotes, and evocative questions you’ll have opportunity to strengthen your inner vision and deepen your experience of the Divine within, among us, and in our world.
We’ll get ideas from the mystic’s gaze, the eyes of the poets, and the vision of the prophets.
This Prayer Bench Lent retreat offers suggestions for creating your Lent space/altar-table to help focus your Lent intentions. The pages of the retreat will unfold different facets of sacred seeing helping us learn to perceive the world with the eyes of poets, prophets, and ordinary mystics. The reflections, practices, and creative activities invite us into a deeper experience of the Divine within and among us.
