Centering Prayer Group 

November 22, 2024 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Friday, repeating indefinitely

Centering Prayer Group

Fridays, 10:00-11:00am via Zoom

Meet with other spiritual seekers to discuss a book about Centering Prayer, and then practice Centering Prayer for 20 minutes.

Father Thomas Keating once commented on an article that spoke of the blissfulness attained through Centering Prayer with… “Maybe in the beginning!” He knew that the purpose of this contemplative form of prayer wasn’t simply relaxation or spiritual consolation. Centering Prayer is a meaningful practice meant to deepen our relationship with God. A relationship nurtured in the deepest silence within our hearts. And nurturing this relationship inevitably includes wrestling with what we want (or programs for happiness) versus what God wants for us (us healed to bring love and oneness forward). Your primary Centering Prayer practice happens daily, in solitude, however, coming together each week with this group helps you explore the questions that arise through hearing of the experiences of others. Participating in a group also helps strengthen your consistency in daily practice. All levels of experience, including beginners, are encouraged and invited to join us.
