You are welcome….

… if you are comfortable with your faith, but want to add more embodied and

experiential practices to your spiritual life.

…if you have been wounded by organized religion and yet still want to

understand what Jesus came to teach.

…if you have never felt comfortable in traditional Christianity, but are looking

for a joyful and life-giving way to connect with the wisdom of Jesus’ teachings.

FACILITATOR: Louise Jacobus 619-415-3568


LOCATION:  Contact Louise for location in central San Diego


Each month, we will learn one line of the prayer, exploring in depth the spiritual teachings that

are contained in the Aramaic. Each month, we will also practice saying the whole prayer in

Aramaic, so these sacred words become familiar and easy to say.


The class will be a mixture of lecture and experiential activities. The lectures will explore the

translations of the Aramaic and the deeper meanings contained in these words. The

experiential activities include a simple form of body prayer with easy to learn melodies that

help us embody the teachings and bring them into our everyday lives. 


Come, come whoever you are!

About the class:


• The class will be a mixture of lecture and experiential activities. The lectures consider the

direct translations of the Aramaic, as well as the spiritual understandings of these words.

• The transformative power of this prayer is best experienced by joining together in simple

movements with music or body prayers that accompany each line. These gentle

movements help us experience the prayer, not only through our minds, but also through

our hearts.

• However, for people who do not want to participate in the movement, it will be fine to just

watch. If it is difficult for you to stand, the easy movements can be adapted to sitting.

• No experience is needed to participate. Everything needed will be taught before we

begin. The movements and melodies to the Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic are simple, gentle,

and easy to learn.

• If there is interest, a Part Two will be offered, completing all lines of the prayer.


About the facilitator:


Louise Jacobus has been studying and exploring the Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic for about

30 years. She finds that the wisdom and guidance contained in this prayer continue to open

and deepen her understanding of the spiritual life. She enjoyed being raised in the Dutch

Reformed Church and Presbyterian traditions, but found she wanted to explore practices

that reflected the living reality of Jesus’ teachings. 


About the musician:


Annye Love will be accompanying us on keyboard. Annye was raised in a missionary

family, developing a great love for the spiritual teachings of Jesus and a strong desire to

help people of diverse cultures. In addition to her involvement with music, Annye is a

bilingual teacher, and volunteers to teach English as a second language to refugees in San

Diego.


Donations:

In the spirit of giving and receiving from the heart, a donation basket will be available at

each class. All donations after expenses will benefit local organizations assisting survivors

of human trafficking.
