Led by Petra Griffiths.

Deep Abiding Prayer (DAP) approaches contemplative prayer of the heart as a spiritual practice occurring in silence, and also as a way of being while living everyday life. The heart is seen as the seat of compassion, and the prayer is at the intersection between contemplation and action.

This approach was developed by Episcopalian Chaplain Catherine Quehl-Engel, drawing on the presence of the Spirit as described in the Hebrew Scriptures as Ruach, as pneuma and energon in Paul’s epistles, and as Holy Spirit or third member of the Trinity. We have adapted DAP for use in group and individual settings in the UK. We practise the prayer and hear readings and contemplative songs during the course sessions.
We also do a short embodied practice at the start of each session.

Petra Griffiths is Coordinator of Living Spirituality Connections in the UK and Pastoral Care Coordinator at St James’s Church Piccadilly.
