Visio Divina – The Practice of Sacred Seeing

The practice of Visio Divina (Latin for Divine Seeing) is a prayer practice inviting you to pay attention to the Holy speaking through images. It is based on the 6th century monastic practice of Lectio Divina where scripture is the object of prayer.

This audio recording will lead you through the Practice of Visio Divina. You might want to choose one of the images below for your practice (click on them to make larger.) Or choose one of your photographs or pieces of art. Or look out a window and let what it frames be your picture.

We sometimes use the Practice of Visio Divina in our Email Retreats.
