Centering Prayer is a receptive method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God's presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself.
In order to begin on time, if possible, login in 5 minutes ahead of our starting time.
This Method of prayer is both a relation with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.
Contemplative Outreach website, is a wonderful resource for information about Centering Prayer and Welcoming Prayer as well as other forms of prayer.
