Wonder & Awe
Experience the fullness of God's presence flowing in nature through sensory awareness and creative journaling.
Wonder & Awe is a contemplative prayer practice that invites you to take a long loving look at creation and become awakened to God's presence.
Developing the spiritual gifts of wonder and awe are dependent upon our ability to actively look upon God’s creation with great curiosity and receptivity in the present moment. Actively engaging in these concrete sensory experiences of God’s presence actually activates the awareness centers of our brain and helps our mind become more integrated and healthy. God becomes more neurologically real for us and deepens the ability of our minds and hearts to truly understand and receive the love of God.
So come to surround yourself with the beauty of nature and step into awareness of the present moment with great curiosity.
Deepen your breath
Open your body
Activate all of your senses
Authentically connect and reflect with others
And experience the presence of God
Flowing through you
And all creation
