Centering Prayer Meetings via Zoom and In Person
Quote by Fr Thomas Keating
Centering Prayer at Stillpoint, Tuesdays 1pm - 2pm
Stillpoint's Centering Prayer group is open to All.
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.
This Method of prayer is both a relationship 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.
Our Centering Prayer Group meets every Tuesday online via zoom and, when weather allows,
also in person on the deck at Stillpoint. Following the state of Washington's COVID-19 guidelines
for group gathering, we ask that you wear a mask if you are not vaccinate.
If you have any questions regarding Stillpoint's weekly Centering Prayer meetings,

If you are new to Centering Prayer and/or wish to join us for the first time,
please contact Mary McMahon.
What we need most
in order to make progress
is to be silent
before this great God
with our appetite
and with our tongue,
for the language
he best hears
is silent love.
Contemplation is nothing other than a secret, peaceful, loving inflow of God.
If given room, it will fire the soul in the spirit of love.
--John of the Cross, trans. Mirabai Starr
