Our Lives As Prayer: “A prayer is one who prays”

A workshop with Elizabeth Cunningham, author of My Life as a Prayer: A Multifaith Memoir

A workshop for anyone who wonders what is prayer? For anyone who prays, who wants to pray, who needs prayer, who is a prayer

Through guided meditation and interactive reflection, we will explore our experiences of prayer, the many forms prayer can take: spoken, sung, silent, tactile, embodied, within a religious tradition and outside of one, as part of a group or in solitude. Together we will consider ways to create a daily prayer practice or to refresh an existing one. We will complete our time with our own prayer circle.

Elizabeth Cunningham is an ordained interfaith minister and pastoral counselor. She is also the direct descendant of generations of Episcopal priests. A lifelong novelist, she is best known for The Maeve Chronicles, a series of award-winning novels featuring a Celtic Magdalen. My Life as a Prayer is her nonfiction debut. Her workshop “Our Lives as Prayer” is designed to share her work in a community context.

If you are interested in hosting “Our Lives as Prayer” please contact Elizabeth through this website for information about timeframe, honorarium and any other questions you might have.

My Life as a Prayer is a wise and careful religious memoir written by a sympathetic contemporary religious seeker—a prayerful touch point amid a world of difficulties.”
—Foreword Reviews

“This is a memoir for anyone who wrestles with the sacred or divine. Cunningham prompts the reader to think for themselves. She practices prayer, listening, and wonder.”
—Spirituality & Practice

“Anything that breaks our isolation is prayer. Connection is prayer.”
