"Be still and know that I am God."

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 heart – our whole being – to God, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond thoughts, words and emotions.  Centering Prayer facilitates the movement from more active modes of prayer – verbal, mental, or affective prayer – into 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.
