1. In this BMPS (Blessed Movements Prayer Session), we body-pray the great Love Commandments (Mark 12). I suggest breathing deeply with the movements, and doing it over and over until you feel the Love deep in your body, heart and soul. Even if you don't, this practice will open your heart or deepen your breathing. This BMPS was created and demonstrated by Roy DeLeon, oblate of St Benedict at St Placid Priory in Lacey, WA. In 2009, Paraclete Press published his book "Praying with the Body: Bringing the Psalms to Life." Music from iLife/Apple. Inc.

  2. In this BMPS (Blessed Movements Prayer Session), we pray The Lord's Prayer with gentle body movements and gestures (borrowed from yoga, tai chi, qigong) to enhance and deepen the prayer that Jesus taught. Prayer here is defined as being with the Divine… with all our body, heart, mind and soul. This BMPS was created and demonstrated by Roy DeLeon, oblate of St Benedict at St Placid Priory in Lacey, WA. In 2009, Paraclete Press published his book "Praying with the Body: Bringing the Psalms to Life."
