Presented by Lynne Moldenhauer, IHM, and Julie Vieira, IHM, participants will explore the various prayer forms that can help us to become more consciously present to the Divine in our lives by paying attention to our seeing, to sounds and silence, through nature, through body awareness and so forth.
