Rebirth from the Breath:

Meditation and Movement with the Aramaic Jesus


“The sign of the Breathing Life of All in you is: movement and rest.”–Gospel of Thomas, saying 50

During this retreat, we will use teachings and practices suggested by the words of Jesus in his native Aramaic language to deepen in our own sense of rebirth and healing. This rebirth can occur when we reconnect with the timeless, always-on part of our nature that Jesus called in Aramaic ruha.

In the Gospel of John, he gives specific ways to do this, which will form the basis of the retreat. We will alternate gentle moving meditation in the form of Dances of Universal Peace with sitting in silence to absorb the wordless experience further into our hearts.

Neil will draw teachings and new Dances of Universal Peace from his most recent work on the Jesus traditions in early Aramaic Christianity as well as Native Middle Eastern spirituality. The retreat is open to all, some prior contemplative prayer or meditation experience is helpful.

Location: DeWeyst, Handel, Netherlands.

Time: Friday dinner through Sunday lunch.
