Prayer is touching Reality without seeking to get anything.
Michael B. Beckwith
The way things have always been is not the way things will always be.
Humanity is on the precipice of a new dawning, a new golden era of beingness, a new way of interacting with Self, and the reflection of Self that is present in everyone and everything. At this time in human history, all of humanity is witness to this changing of the guard while being active contributors to the amount of time it takes for the new paradigm to unfold and become the accepted experience and culture.
These are indeed mercurial times. Uncomfortable times. Trying times. Like so many who have gone before us, we know that on the deepest and highest levels, this too shall pass and is passing.
The truth is you can know this. You can live this. You can breathe this. You can experience this through Prayer 2: The Soul of Prayer.
As Rev. Michael teaches, prayer is the foundation of spiritual practice. In its simplest form and expression, prayer awakens your awareness of your Oneness with the Divine. It is the direct channel and line of communication that extends from you to the Heart-Mind of Spirit, of the Presence of the Living God.
Prayer is the first wireless form of communication.
Michael B. Beckwith
Prayer is an experience.
Prayer activates healing. Prayer minimizes feelings of loneliness, depression, and anxiety and soothes uncertainty. More than anything, prayer restores you to a rightful awareness and understanding of who you are and your relationship with God.
That is the beauty of prayer. That is the mystery of prayer. That is the love of prayer. That is the joy of prayer. That is the peace of prayer.
That is the Soul of Prayer.
Prayer swings wide open the doors of opportunity. Prayer activates healing. Prayer minimizes feelings of loneliness, depression, anxiety, and soothes uncertainty.
More than anything, prayer restores you to a rightful awareness and understanding of who you are and your relationship to God. Prayer anchors the absolute truth of what IS!
Once you are fully aware of your relationship to Source, the Universe opens in ways beyond your imagination. That is the beauty of prayer. That is the mystery of prayer. That is the love of prayer. That is the joy of prayer. That is the peace of prayer.
The soul of Prayer: Communion with the Presence
Prayer 2: The Soul of Prayer is a deeper dive into communion with the Presence, moving you beyond the structure of prayer into the heart and soul of prayer. In this class, you will capture what it means to fall in love with prayer and to fall in love with the Presence of God. In The Soul of Prayer, you’ll shift your consciousness of prayer from manifesting things and experiences to the consciousness of complete surrender to God which creates the conditions for everything you need to come to you abundantly.
Prayer 2: The Soul of Prayer will be facilitated by the following guest master teachers each week, who will bring her consciousness and knowledge of spiritual practice and prayer to the space, including:
Week 1 - Gratitude with Rev. Julie Moret
Week 2 - Recognition with Rev.
Evoke and explore the Presence of God in all of Its splendor.
Week 3 - Unification with Rev. Joan Steadman
Explore an ever-deepening awareness of our oneness with God and all creation.
Week 4 - Realization with Rev. Coco Stewart
Name and claim dynamic universal principles that heal by revealing the perfection of the Truth.
Week 5 - Thanksgiving with Eisha Mason, ALSP
Celebrate and give thanks that this Truth revealed itself through the word, give thanks for the realization.
Week 6 - Release with Rev. Arlene Hylton
Understanding that the word was spoken into a law…letting go, letting God and letting it be…understanding it’s already done…
Whether you are new to prayer or have an established prayer practice, you will leave this course in an elevated, enriched, and altered state from being immersed in the practice and feeling tone of prayer.
As Rev. Michael has said, “True manifestation is when you become a better version of yourself.” Prayer 2: The Soul of Prayer will bring you into an expanded version of yourself, thus creating the condition for true manifestation to occur.
