Saturday, February 1

9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.

   Bob Mischke Julie Saad 2018           Sue K Sue Kahalekulu  

It’s one thing to “let go” and surrender to God during 20 minutes of Centering Prayer, but it’s quite another once we return to the circumstances of ordinary life and our buttons get pushed.


The Welcoming Prayer is a practice designed to help us respond, instead of react, when we find our emotional programs triggered. In this simple prayer we learn to surrender to God’s presence and action in our lives so we aren’t so torn apart by anxiety, fears, anger or other afflictive emotions.

This class provides instruction on the Welcoming Prayer, as well as opportunities to practice both it and Centering Prayer. The class also is an excellent refresher for those who already have learned the Welcoming Prayer and would like to deepen their practice.

 Cost: $45  
  (Includes: The Contemplative Life Program booklet and the Welcoming Prayer Consent On The Go)  
RSVP: By Thursday, May 9  
 When: Saturday, May 11  
  9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
