ContemPLAYte Sessions

Break from busy. Breathe deep. Give yourself some time and space to listen to your soul.

Come learn and experience the benefits of Christian contemplative practice in a small, supportive setting.


Are you burnt out on religion? Has faith seemingly stalled out?

Craving more quiet and simplicity in your connection with God?

Go ahead… let a little play into your soul.

If you are looking for a soul-full experience in God that’s personal and particular, yet mysterious all at the same time, you’re invited to join a small group (max 12) to learn about and practice along the contemplative path. Absolute “beginners” are welcome, and also those who enjoy practicing with others.

Every week, we’ll be exploring a couple of different contemplative practices rooted in the Christian tradition. 

  • May 1 - Lectio Divina & Breath Prayer

  • May 8 - The Examen & Welcoming Prayer

  • May 15 - Audio & Visio Divina

  • May 22 - Centering Prayer & The Labyrinth

Christianity has a rich heritage of contemplative practices that support people’s connection to God. And, while much of these have been “lost” over the centuries, there is a growing interest and recognition of their profound support for our spiritual journey.

We’ll be practicing pathways like Lectio, Audio & Visio Divina, variations of the Examen, Breath Prayer, Centering Prayer, and more.

When: Wednesday evenings in May. 7:30pm - 8:45pm

Where: Awakening Health Clinic, 4300 Upper Middle Road, Burlington, ON

Cost: $15.00 /session. Includes a take-home resource to continue your own practice. [Register for all four sessions, and receive a free admission to Yoga Basics Class (regular $25) on last Wednesday, May 29.]

*Everyone is welcome. Don’t identify as a Christian? No problem. Any person, of any faith background (or not), can attend and enjoy a thoughtful, safe class environment as we connect together with the Divine. Have questions? Contact Christa.
