Introduction to Centering Prayer
Four Mondays in June, 6:15 – 7:15 pm, H6
Leader: Kathy Kramer-Howe
“Be still and know that I am God.” — Psalm 46:10
Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer and a way to be more aware of God’s loving presence. Developed by Father Thomas Keating, and introduced worldwide by Contemplative Outreach, LTd, Centering Prayer is a simple, yet powerful daily practice of communing with God in a holy silence.
During these sessions, we will deepen our understanding of the background and method of the prayer, and experience it together.
God’s presence within us is 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. The program encourages a daily prayer practice and provides participants with the tools to do so.
Each class stands alone, but the progression will give your greater facility with this prayer practice. There is no cost, and registration is not necessary.
For more information, please contact Kathy Kramer-Howe at firstname.lastname@example.org or 602-421-0444. Prior registration is not necessary. For child care, please call 602-840-8360, ext 134, at least 48 hours in advance of the class.
