CHRISTIAN CONTEMPLATIVE PRAYER  
Friday, June 5 - Sunday, June 7, 2020

 

In this Zoom workshop we will rediscover the ancient Christian understanding of "contemplation," embracing both apophatic (imageless, wordless) and kataphatic (image-filled, word-filled) prayer. We will emphasize the importance of interweaving and alternating both of these forms of contemplation. Practices that will be discussed include: Christian monologistic prayer (especially the Jesus Prayer and the Rosary), monastic psalmody, and lectio divina. Links will be provided to a workshop website containing all texts and images that will be presented, as well as a bibliography containing recommended texts for further study. 

 

Fr. Luke Dysinger has been a monk of Valyermo since 1976. He is a priest and a physician who writes and teaches in the fields of mystical theology and biomedical ethics. He received a D.Phil. in patristics at Oxford University and is professor of church history and moral theology at St. John's Seminary in Camarillo, CA.
