Power of Prayer: From Longing to Belonging

When we bring a full presence to prayer, it becomes a powerful pathway of homecoming. This talk explores how prayer heals the pain of separation, and offers practical guidance in what poet John O’Donohue calls “unearthing our ancient belonging.”

By going right into the very essence of longing with full presence, mindful prayer becomes a bridge where we actually dissolve into that larger sense of being.

Clarissa Pinkola Estés writes:

"You may be pushed down.
You may be kept from rising.
But no one can keep you from lifting your heart
toward heaven..."

What’s it like if you bow your head and whisper and call on something larger?
