The Transforming Power of Icons for Prayer and Contemplation – Steve Binz


Product Type: Mp3 Recording

Icons have been described as theology in line and color. They are the visual language of Eastern Christianity and are growing in appreciation by all Christians. This workshop will teach participants the practice of attentively and receptively gazing upon icons so that the experience leads to meditation, prayer, and spiritual transformation. Techniques will also be offered for using icons for adult and adolescent faith formation.
