Hands-on prayer & listening experiences for 6 to 12 year-olds and their families.
Praying Hands Circles are aimed to nurture children's friendship with a loving God through engaging in creative, hands-on listening prayer practices. During the gathering a spiritual director will accompany the children (and adults) into a prayerful silence paired, or followed by a sensory practice and a time of listening and sharing together.
Currently gathering online.
Who are they for?
6 to 12 year-olds and their families who want to deepen their lives with God and each other. If your children are younger (3-6s), let's talk about starting a "Tiny Praying Hands Circle" with your little ones !
Who is the Instructor?
The sessions are guided by a certified Christian spiritual director Kaisa Stenberg-Lee.
A participation fee per child (and their adult) is $40 for a four-week (one month) Praying Hands Circle. Your place is secured once the payment has been made.
Spaces are limited to 10 child participants per session.
Become a HOST!
