For anyone who has ever desired to dive deeply into ancient religious texts such as the Bible, the Tao Te Ching, the Quran, the Bhagavad Gita, and others, there is a less stressful, and more transformative way of reading these books. Using the easily accessible method of Lectio Divina (Sacred Reading), found in ancient Christian monastic communities we find a way to read meditatively, at your own soul's pace, in order to find what the text has to say to you personally today. Through the four steps of Read (Lectio), Meditate (Meditatio), Pray (Oratio), and Contemplate (Contemplatio) you will discover a way to make reading your sacred text a valuable part of your daily practice. You will also learn how to lead groups using this method.
