The Way of Prayer of the Aramaic Jesus:

Heartsong, Silence and Movement

Dr Neil Douglas-Klotz

The Aramaic words of Jesus provide a direct pathway to his experience of contemplative prayer, healing and the divine. During this workshop, we will learn selected short phrases from his prayer, the Beatitudes, and sayings in the Gospel of John, chant them together, and then use them in contemplative prayer and silence. We will also experience a simple body prayers in the form of Dances of Universal Peace linked to his Middle Eastern way of experiencing Alaha–Sacred Unity–as a force that moves through every aspect of our everyday life.

Since the publication of his 1990 landmark book Prayers of the Cosmos (Das Vaterunser), Neil has been one of the foremost interpreters of Yeshua’s spirituality using his native Aramaic language as an experiential lens. Neil’s work has been translated into multiple languages as well as used in divinity schools and training seminars for ministers throughout the world. Neil is also the author of several other books including Desert Wisdom (Weisheit der Wueste), The Hidden Gospel (Prophet aus der Wueste), Original Meditation (Die Ursprüngliche Meditation), Blessings of the Cosmos (Segen aus den Kosmos) and The Sufi Book of Life (Sufi Buch von Leben). He is the co-founder of the International Network for the Dances of Universal Peace and has shared interfaith and interspiritual retreats around the world for the past 30 years. He and his wife Natalia now live in Scotland, UK. More information about his work can be found at:
