    Smile Praying towards the East

    Does anyone here incorporate this practice into their path? The Eastern Christians always pray facing the East, since that is where they believe a number of things happen/are: Eden, facing Christ who was crucified in the west, facing Jerusalem in hopes of the New Jerusalem, looking towards the second coming...and so forth.


    It's an interesting practice in my view. Just wondering!

    Hello. I'm sorry that it took a few years for me to answer this but I think it's kind of a cool idea.

    Moved to Abrahamic Faiths because it involves more general discussion for all paths included in Abrahamic Faiths, not just Christo Paganism.

    i dont always pray facing east but my altar is facing east. i usually try to have altars facing east because of Jewish and Christian tradition.

    About my username: It's after a little wooded area i hang out in, near a church called Zion. Later i found out the word "Zionwood" may have political implications, but that wasn't my intent at all when i picked it.
