Praying Hands
Circles

Hands-on prayer & listening experiences for all ages.

What?

Praying Hands Circles are aimed to nurture our friendship with a loving God through engaging in creative, hands-on listening prayer practices. During the gathering a spiritual director will accompany the participants into a prayerful silence paired, or followed by a sensory practice and a time of listening and sharing together.

The Circles can gather both online anywhere, and in homes, parks, schools or churches in Denver, Colorado area. ​

Who Is the Instructor?

The sessions are guided by a trained Christian spiritual director Kaisa Stenberg-Lee.
