As part of our re-launch it’s exciting to announce that Space to Breathe will be working in partnership with Proost into the future.
Andy has been supporting Proost over a few years now but at the start of the year this partnership was formalised and we are excited about the potential of mutually sharing resources, connections and vision into the future.
Proost is an online platform for musicians, poets, artists and creatives to share their ideas and work. Proust is sharing inspiring resources that fuel faith. It grew from the Alternative Worship movement and has at it’s heart pioneer and leader Jonny Baker, animator and artist Jon Birch and Canadian entrepreneur Aad Vermeyden. Andy and Space to Breathe now join this team and we are excited about the potential to both develop Proost’s vision into the future and to connect it’s resources with the development work that Space to Breathe is doing in workplace, community and schools as well as in faith settings.
As we at Space to Breathe get read for our re-launch and the Silence Challenge that follows, we wanted to share a few Proost resources which may prove helpful.
“In silence I can hear your song”
But in Silence is an amazing EP from Flock who are poet Harry Baker and musician Chris Read. It’s a four track download featuring beautiful music and spoken word.
“What happens when humans decide to stop”
Waiting in Silence is a moving and beautifully created short film by Corrymeela Community member and former Centre Director, Paul Hutchinson. The 28 minute documentary, which is narrated by Community Leader, Pádraig Ó Tuama, explores a Quaker Meeting in Coleraine, during an act of Worship. Using this specific context, the film goes on to ask more universal questions about the role and function of silence and contemplation in our society.
“A Formless Void In silence, away from prying eyes, we hold each other”
Fear and Dust: A Hymnal for the Wild is just one of many inspirational liturgy and prayer resources on Proost, this one written by Tim Watson. It explores the idea of wilderness and the questions we ask when we, or God, or our circumstances just don’t seem to fit.
We hope you enjoy these and many other resources available on Proost and we look forward to this new partnership as it develops.
