"I received spiritual growth, community growth, covenant sharing and bonding, exceptional worship, knowledge and prayer tools, support and encouragement for my spiritual journey. Still, these words cannot express all the blessings given to me." — Gace Institute Graduate
"It's so good to worship in this community; it's always a highlight." — Current participant
Each session of the Spiritual Formation Program includes two periods of body prayer for those who wish to participate.
Sister Marian Klostermann, OSF, gives guidance and leadership in body prayer using Tai Chi.
Also available for additional cost each session is a body massage by a staff person from Integrating Wellness, housed in the Shalom building. Most popular is a 15 minute chair massage.
"This program is amazing and has been an incredible source of grace in my life. I like the blend of study and practice, of worship and of individual meditation time, of head and heart. I like that you include the body too." — Grace Institute Graduate
