The intent of Contemplative Outreach is to foster the process of transformation in Christ in one another through the practice of the Centering Prayer.

Contemplative Outreach (www.contemplativeoutreach.org) serves a spiritual network of individuals and small faith communities committed to living the contemplative dimension of the Gospel. The common desire for Divine transformation, primarily expressed through commitment to a daily Centering Prayer practice, unites our international, interdenominational network.

Our chapter is comprised of groups from different Christian denominations throughout Northeast Ohio that meet regularly to practice Centering Prayer in community and enrich and encourage each other in their spiritual journeys.

During each calendar year, we offer activities that introduce Centering Prayer to new people and opportunities for enrichment such as workshops, retreats, videos, and guest speakers. We also offer programs on related contemplative practices such as the Welcoming Prayer and Lectio Divina.

Here, you will find information about upcoming events, local Centering Prayer groups, and more. Please contact us with any questions or to let us know how we might support you on your spiritual journey.
