Syllabus: Contemplative Prayer Practices, by Lisa Dahill

Last fall, Lisa Dahill offered a course on contemplative practices and their capacity for being followed within an ecological context. Here is the course description:

This course introduces students to a range of practices of contemplative prayer, centering in a broadly ecological context: both Earth itself as our shared creaturely home and the particular places where students live. Students will engage in experiential elements that are adaptable to the students’ own tradition and/or context, including traditional forms like centering/mindfulness, Ignatian Examen, and lectio divina as well as social justice/feminist, land-based, shadow- and dream-based practices. Students will have the opportunity to research and present to the class a prayer practice of their own tradition, context, or creative innovation as well.
