Movement and Rest:

Meditations 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 activity and repose in life. How do we find balance between the needs of the inner life and the outer life? Can we find harmony between our genuine need to pursue goals in life and deep surrender to Alaha, the source and goal of everything? Yeshua’s words and meditations are a key to this.

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.

In German language.
