Centering Prayer is a receptive method of silent prayer that pre-pares us to receive the gift of con-templative prayer, prayer in which we experience God’s presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than con-sciousness itself.
This method of prayer is both a rela-tionship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship. Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer. Rather, it adds depth of meaning to all prayer and facili-tates the movement from more ac-tive modes of prayer – verbal, men-tal or affective prayer – into a recep-tive prayer of resting in God. Centering Prayer emphasizes prayer as a personal relationship with God and as a movement beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Christ.
Begins on Thursday the 11th at 9:45 am. Meets for five weeks.
