Introductory Series to the Method of Centering Prayer
Starting Saturday, October 14th


This is the basic training for Centering Prayer meditation. Centering Prayer is a receptive method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, in which we experience God's presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself.

“Be Still, and Know I Am God”

Introductory Workshop: Saturday, October 14, 3:30 - 8:00 p.m.

Will include two (20) minute opportunities to practice Centering Prayer. (Light Supper will be served).

Follow-up sessions: Saturdays, Oct 21, Oct. 28th and Nov. 4th from 3:00 to 5:30 pm. Will include one (20) minute opportunity to practice Centering Prayer. Utilizing the videotapes and the book “Open Heart and Open Mind” of Fr. Thomas Keating we will continue to study contemplative prayer in the Christian tradition, practice Centering Prayer together and discover how to further support one another in the ongoing spiritual journey.
