Dr. Memet Oz and Father Richard Rohr on the Healing Power of Contemplative Prayer

November 10, 2011

Dr. Oz believes prayer plays an important role in many people’s lives and reports that studies have shown that prayer (or its absence) can have a profound effect on our health. Dr. Oz and his wife, Lisa, talk to Father Richard Rohr, a Franciscan priest and author, about the healing power of “contemplative prayer”. Father Rohr speaks of effective, healing prayer as a transformation of consciousness. “Saying prayers is what’s taken over in the West, but beinga prayer is abiding with the inner presence, what we would call the divine Holy Spirit,” he says.

In observance of 11/11/2011 (Friday, November 11, 2011) and the Oprah’s Life Class first semester finale, the BTS Contributors have planned a day full of inspiration!

A Day of Inspiration

First, instead of only posting one message, we will post multiple messages throughout the day and encourage you to pray and meditate at 11:11 AM, 1:11 PM and again at 11:11 PM. We encourage you to focus on what you WANT not what you don’t want. And to ask for God’s direction and healing blessings. You have the power!

Stay at Home By The Spirit TWEET UP!

The second event is our very first “stay at home” By The Spirit TWEET UP! Instead of organizing a traditional Tweetup (meeting in-person at a central location [coffee shop, museum, park etc.] to chat, tweet and connect), we are inviting you to join us virtually by watching Oprah’s Life Class with us online or on OWN (check your cable listings) and to tweet with us about your aha moments, reflections and lessons learned during the series and/or from blog posts.
