The Examen Prayer and the Body’s Knowing
This spiritual exercise comes to us from Ignatius Loyola. It involves five movements to pray to: appreciate the past day; review the day in thanksgiving; understand the feelings of the day; choose one feeling and pray about it; and, look forward to tomorrow. So, we turn our attention inward..center ourselves and become aware of God. What do you need to ground you? Looking back, what was most life-giving? What was most life-draining? Holding a heart of gratitude and forgiveness, what guidance do you need to support you? How might you call on God for that guidance?
