Meditation Chapel

Pray in silence with practitioners from all over the world. Centering Prayer groups are forming on this global video platform of online meditation groups.

It's difficult to describe how profoundly connecting, expansive and intimate it is to see, hear and join in silent prayer with others from all over the world.

You just have to try it.

 
     
 

To join the groups, follow these steps:

To get started Click here and follow the steps to register on the site.

 

You will receive an email with a link to the meditation chapel the group meets in. Once you receive a link to a chapel (i.e., to Peace Chapel or to John Main Chapel), it’s always the same link. Save it for future use.

 

About 5-10 minutes before the group starts, click on the link to enter the chapel.

 


Using a device with a larger screen and video camera is recommended for the best experience (laptop, desktop, tablet).


It's easy! Facilitators will introduce you to the group and help you with any questions.Please share this information with your communities.

LENTEN RETREAT

A THREE-DAY COMMUTER RETREAT

                           
  Commuter Retreat  
 

February 20 - February 22

(Thursday through Saturday)

During the season of Lent we are invited to go with Jesus into the desert, a place of purification. Fr. Thomas describes Lent as a time to look at the unconscious dynamics that keep us from a deep relationship with God.

 

This retreat time will provide conditions which will allow for desert like silence and solitude as well as periods of Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina. Input from the facilitators will be minimal…just enough to focus on the Lenten theme of purification and allow participants to pray as they are led by the Holy Spirit.

 

A simple breakfast and lunch will be provided on Friday and Saturday. Meals will be served upstairs and will be eaten in silence within an atmosphere of soothing music.

 
     
 Cost: $120
