Please contact Josie at Josie@bodyprayer.com.au to order.
The meditation style used is Loyolan. This is based on the work of St Ignatius of Loyola who took students through a series of meditations that lead them through the life of Jesus.
It is a very special way to encounter God.
The first part of the CD takes the participant into a state of deep relaxation. This is based on the concept of conscious muscle relaxation, taking the participant through each part of the body in a specific order. This practice alone is very beneficial for handling chronic tension, stress, insomnia and depression.
They are then led through a visualization of an event in the life of Jesus, where they are an onlooker or participant. This climaxes in a specific encounter with God. The participant is left to respond in their own way.
A period of silence follows, then the participant is brought back to conscious awareness gently.
