Centering Prayer Introductory Workshop

Description

Do you seek the still, quiet voice of God? Come explore the indwelling presence of God within each of us and our intimate relationship with that presence. Experienced practitioners, commissioned by Contemplative Outreach, Ltd., will present a method of Christian meditation — Centering Prayer. We will discuss the benefits of Centering Prayer in ordinary life and experience two periods of practice. Discover the meaning of Psalm 46: “Be still and know that I am God.”

The workshop will include the history and theological foundations for Centering Prayer, as well as the prayer experience itself.

Introductory Workshops usually have several follow-up sessions. These are planned for the December 14 and 21 sessions and will build on what was learned on December 7.

A donation of $25 per person is requested (make checks payable to CONEO). All participants will receive a copy of Open Mind, Open Heart by Father Thomas Keating.

If you plan to attend, please contact the parish office by December 3.
