About Us

  • During this time of social distancing, several of our prayer groups continue to meet for prayer and discussion using ZOOM. We have listed these virtual meeting days and times under PRAYER GROUPS. Please know you are welcome to participate in any group. The primary contact person listed with each meeting can provide you with the ZOOM access information.
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 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.

Contemplative Outreach Northeast Ohio (CONEO) is comprised of groups from different Christian denominations throughout Northeast Ohio that meet regularly to practice Centering Prayer in community, and to 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.
