WORKSHOP: Introduction to Centering Prayer

  • United Church of Straffod 230 Justin Morrill Memorial Highway Strafford, VT, 05072 United States (map)


SPONSORING GROUP: United Church of Strafford | Strafford, VT

Centering Prayer is a method of prayer which prepares us to receive the gift of God's presence. This was 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.
