Are you feeling a desire to deepen your prayer or to learn about the Christian contemplative path?

 

Centering Prayer is a method of prayer which prepares us to more fully receive the gift of God’s presence. This is traditionally called contemplative prayer. Contemplative prayer is the opening of mind and heartour whole beingto God, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond thoughts, words and emotions. Centering Prayer facilitates the movement from more active modes of prayerverbal, mental, or affective prayerinto a receptive prayer of resting in God. It emphasizes prayer as a personal relationship with God.

This introduction to Centering Prayer includes both instruction and group practice in a method that fosters contemplative prayer.
