The Aquarian Rosary is an adaptation of the traditional rosary that embraces the divine feminine aspect of God. Devotion to Mary invokes our feminine, receptive, and nurturing qualities to balance our selves and society. This unique version of the rosary is from the book, The Aquarian Rosary, Reviving the Art of Mantra Yoga by Rev. Carol Parrish-Harra, Ph.D.
• Learn the history of the rosary in the Christian tradition, and the use of meditation with beads in other traditions.
• Learn how the use of beads, reciting the rosary, and contemplation on the mysteries lead us beyond the rational mind, and how the use of each mystery as a seed thought for meditation opens us to spiritual insights.
Each evening, we will discuss the esoteric significance of praying the rosary and the deeper meaning of each mystery, as it relates to our unfolding spiritual life. The meeting will conclude with practice of the Aquarian Rosary.
The Rosary is a meditative prayer. It consists meditations on the life and death of Jesus from the Annunciation to the Ascension and beyond. These are traditionally grouped by fives into themed sets known as the Joyful Mysteries, the Sorrowful Mysteries, the Glorious Mysteries, and the Luminous Mysteries.
The practice of meditation with beads is found in all faith traditions. During the rosary, the fingers move along the beads, the heart focuses on devotion, and the mind contemplates the mysteries. Our attention is lifted to the higher realms. The practice invokes the power of Good into each life, uplifts and stimulates open minds, and builds the heart center of the unfolding human soul.
