Lord’s Prayer 

Monthly Study Group

meeting every month on the first Monday

Newcomers are welcome!

What would it have been like to have walked with Jesus, 

    and to have heard his words in the Aramaic he spoke?  

How would our hearts have been touched?  

What would we have understood?

This study group is an opportunity to open ourselves to the living spirit that still speaks to us today.

We will use the Aramaic version of the Lord’s Prayer/ Our Father as presented in Prayers of the Cosmosby Neil Douglas-Klotz, Ph.D. as the beginning point of our journey.

Each month, we will focus on one line of the prayer.  We will:

* Learn the pronunciation of the Aramaic

* Explore the literal and spiritual meanings of the Aramaic

* Practice body prayers and meditations to enhance the meaning of the line we are studying for the month

* Dance the line of the prayer accompanied by recordings of music written to enhance the meaning of each line 

* Other complementary resources may be added from time to time.

At the end of the series, we will put together all we have learned and dance the whole prayer in one evening. 

You are invited to join us!  I hope you can come!

Dates:  1st Monday of each month.

         You can join us at any time. 

Time:  We gather about 7:00 pm and begin at 7:15 pm

The meeting will end around 9:00 pm

Location: A private home in La Jolla, near the village

Directions will be given when you register.

Cost:  $10 per evening

        No one will be turned away for lack of funds.  Please call.

Facilitator:  Louise Jacobus.  

        Louise began studying the Lord’s Prayer in Aramaic with 

Neil Douglas-Klotz in the 1980’s.  Louise is a certified leader of 

the Dances of Universal Peace, and she is the spiritual director of 

One Sun San Diego Sufi Circle, an interfaith esoteric school.
