International Aramaic scholar Neil Douglas-Klotz returns to Holland House in 2021 to guide us through the Beatitudes following the path to “ripeness”.
Unfortunately due to Covid restrictions affecting our ability to dance and chant together, Neil has moved the date to 2021 – for which we’re very grateful.
Breathing with Unity, Living with Blessing
Chant, Movement and Contemplative Prayer with the Aramaic Jesus
This year at Holland House, we will return to the heart-awareness of the present moment with a journey through the Beatitudes of Jesus in Aramaic. Through chant, simple circle movement and contemplative prayer, we will re-enter the state that Jesus calls tub, “blessedly ripe—at the right time and place” We will follow the journey of one of the most profound aspects of Jesus’ teaching, the Beatitudes in Matthew. This is a healing journey that takes us to deepest part of ourselves and then resurrects us in power and joy. Whether or not you have joined in these Aramaic retreats previously, this is a wonderful doorway into Jesus’ native spirituality and way of meditation.
Almost half of this retreat was booked by those attending the 2019 retreat before they left ! Needless to say, do please book early to avoid being put on the dreaded “waiting list”
