WISDOM AT PLAY
an experience of prayerful listening

With this recording the brothers of Weston Priory hope to communicate their experience of monastic prayer. Each song is given more space and time for prayerful listening and reflection.

Authentic prayer is creative and playful; engages our ears, hearts, and minds; touches our desires and thirsts; calls us to robe ourselves with compassion; opens our lives to each other and our world.
