Course Description

You are invited on a journey of healing with the Aramaic Lord's Prayer. Become a channel of Divine love, joy, delight, healing, and peace by embracing the prayer of Jesus, as if for the first time.

Growing up, many of you learned and recited the Lord's Prayer in church or at bedtime, saying something like this.

Our Father who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done,
On earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread,
And forgive us our trespasses (debts) as we forgive those who trespass against us (our debtors).
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory forever. Amen.

This is only one translation of Jesus' words, a translation based on Greek manuscripts which were translated over the centuries from one language into another -- into Latin, German, and then into various forms of the English language. However, Jesus did not teach in Greek, Latin, German, or English. He spoke and taught in Aramaic. In the Temple, he would have spoken Hebrew - a sister language to Aramaic, which was the more formal language for the Temple.

You now have the opportunity to return to Jesus' original language and original style of prayer. See what new meanings await your life.

quotes The course has helped my awareness open up, by reviewing the 'old' Lord's Prayer of my youth in a 'new' light and with a 'new' life. It is a fresh breath of air for me.
~ Gilbert B. Smith quotes

Course Objectives
This course delves deeply into the Aramaic Lord's Prayer from a native Middle Eastern point of view. Each lesson focuses on a single line of the prayer breaking down the words, syllables and meanings.
  • Learn and hear the rich sound and word meanings from Jesus' native language, Aramaic.
  • Understand and experience your connection with the One Being, with Sacred Unity that is at the heart of all world religions and spiritual expressions.
  • Experience body prayers that connect you with spiritual practices of Middle Eastern mystics and prophets of long ago. (All of these are contemporary expressions of the ancient practice of body prayers.)
Ancient world-views did not see the body, mind, or emotions as separate aspects of being. Everything was one being; there were no distinct "parts." But we now find ourselves turning to wholistic practitioners in an attempt to reconnect these parts. Open your heart and mind to hear and receive the gift of this ancient prayer anew and be guided towards wholeness.
