Total time: 88:30, $11

Adding conscious devotional gestures to your prayer life can deepen your spiritual connection and experience.


Body Prayer is a way of enhancing one’s prayer practice by adding meaningful gestures to devotional thoughts and feelings. It is applicable to all spiritual paths and religious orientations.

In this five part DVD, Cynthia Hutchison, a respected teacher in the field of energy medicine and Healing  Touch, brings her understanding of Body Prayer through three teaching methods.

Parts 1 and 2 include educational, yet meditative pictorial descriptions and experiences providing background information and an understanding of the four spiritual dimensions of the human being. Part 3 provides a video overview of the various body prayer gestures, their meanings, and how they are associated with the words of four Universal prayers. Part 4 is a practice video that enables the viewer to either listen to the prayer while practicing the gestures with Cynthia, or opting for no voice/sound, and experiencing the gestures/prayers energetically and spiritually in silence. A BONUS TRACK is included with the Hara Alignment Meditation.
