Weekly on Thursdays at 7:30 pm PST via Zoom Beginning on February 23 and culminating on March 30, 2023
Please join us this Lent for a series of prayer learning experiences designed and hosted by the Los Angeles Retreat Center Community. The series will be offered online and will include an introduction to popular prayer forms to be encountered during the Lenten spiritual journey.
These will include: a short history and introduction of the prayer forms and specific sessions on Centering Prayer, Lectio Divina, Visio Divina, and the Labyrinth – or prayer-in-motion. In addition, each retreat center will have its retreat leaders guide each session, providing a Lenten flavor and the opportunity to journey with the retreat leaders in the prayerful discussion.
The sessions will be one-hour in length, held weekly on Thursday at 7:30 pm. You can register here and attend any or all of the sessions.
The program is offered without a fee, but we welcome free will donations to offset the center’s costs to create and present the program.

Lenten Reflections: Part Five ~ The Labyrinth – or Prayer-in-Motion
Thursday, March 23, 7:30-8:30pm
Facilitated by Sue Ballotti and Paul Craig.
Solvitur Ambulando — This is a Latin phrase often attributed to St Augustine and used to describe the benefits of walking and using motion to clear the mind. Prayer in motion is an ancient form of prayer, and the labyrinth walking pattern was common across civilizations for more than 4,000 years. Physical movement connects body, mind and spirit and can be a powerful way of praying. We will introduce forms of prayer-in-motion, with particular reliance on the labyrinth – history, purpose, and creative ways to put labyrinth walks into our prayer practice.
