Hi Elizabeth, I appreciated the Ancient Wisdom class very much.  I learned more than I expected to, most importantly, Prayer.  Church attendance was mandatory for us until Confirmed and despite many years of Catholic Schooling I have never developed sufficient ability in prayer. I thought and spoke with devout intent for years, mostly during times I was instructed to, but could never feel.  There was never the slightest sense of reciprocity.  Meditation has always been difficult despite study and labors towards it as well, still I try.  My wife repeats, “It’s a practice, it takes practice…”   Since you have related the two for me and we established a physical connection to Deity.  Prayer is alive!  Yesterday morning I prayed successfully for the first time!   Thank You !  J.M.
