Deep Abiding Prayer (DAP) approaches contemplative prayer of the heart as a spiritual practice occurring in silence, and also as a way of being while in the midst of everyday life activities and encounters. The heart is seen as the seat of compassion and the prayer is at the intersecton between contemplation and action. This approach was developed by Episcopalian Chaplain Catherine Quehl-Engel, drawing on the presence of the Spirit as described in the Hebrew Scriptures as Ruach, as pneuma and energon in Paul’s epistles, and as Holy Spirit or third member of the Trinity. We have adapted DAP for use in group and individual settings in the UK.
A donation is requested to St James’s Church Piccadilly, who support the work of Living Spirituality Connections, and do much work with people affected by homelessness, with refugees, and with the transition to a sustainable world. The course is offered jointly by St James's Church and Living Spirituality Connections.
