Mind, Body, and the Holy Spirit

A typical PraXis session would involve 20–40 minutes of light exercise, followed by 20 minutes of silent prayer, and then a shared meat- and dairy-free “fasting” meal with a discussion led by the hosting partner.

Contemplation, Calisthenics, Fasting, and Church

Wellness is a secular term for practices that address the pandemic of heart disease, anxiety, and depression. We’ll look at how light exercise, Christian diet, and mindfulness or contemplative prayer can help.

[1 Corinthians 6:19-20]

“Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”

Three Focus Areas

We will explore practices in three areas: mindfulness, fitness, and diet. We’ll show you how to do the exercises, while explaining the theology and science. The goal is to deepen your relationship with God while providing tools for resilience against depression, anxiety, and heart disease.

Christian Mindfulness

Typically known as contemplation, this tradition goes back almost 2,000 years. Explore contemporary Centering Prayer and other forms of conventional prayer that helps exercise the mind and reduce stress.

Christian Diet

Christian Dieting is called fasting and it doesn’t mean you stop eating. But it does mean you occasionally restrict your intake of meat and dairy. We’ll look at the health benefits, theology, and practice of this ancient tradition.

Exercise

The need for exercise is a fact of modern life. While there is no such thing as a Christian form of yoga, we’ll explore body-weight exercises and how exercise relates to other prayer practices.
