Centering Prayer Introductory Workshop


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.”

A donation of $30 per person is requested (make checks payable to CONEO). All participants will receive a copy of Open Mind, Open Heart by Father Thomas Keating
