INTRODUCTION TO CENTERING PRAYER WORKSHOP

                              
   

Are you looking for a way to explore or deepen your relationship with God? In our introductory workshop to Centering Prayer, you will discover a centuries-old prayer method. Centering Prayer consists of simply sitting in silence with God—beyond thoughts, words, and emotions – and opening your mind, heart and whole being to the Ultimate Mystery. In this workshop, you’ll learn the basics of Centering Prayer, experience it in a guided setting, and be able to ask questions and share experiences with the presenter and your fellow initiates.

 

Centering Prayer is based on a Christian contemplative practiced first described in The Cloud of Unknowing, written in the latter half of the 14th Century. It calls one to abandon any consideration of God’s attributes and actions, and to surrender to his influence in our lives. It is a very personal prayer practice but is often practiced in groups. It opens one to God’s infinite love and power to heal, and opens the door to other related prayer practices around forgiveness, and dealing with painful situations and emotions.

 

The workshop is a prerequisite to the six-week Basic Centering Prayer, Course I, a six-week course that delves more into the practice and effects of Centering Prayer. Introduction to Centering Prayer, then, is a sampling of the practice and its benefits. Basic Centering Prayer, Course I, is the next step to a committed
practice.
