with Janice Boyd and Joyce Faidley*

Centering Prayer is a gentle, silent method of consenting to God's presence and healing action within us. Rooted in the rich Christian contemplative heritage, Centering Prayer offers a way to open to God for those of all faith traditions.” Taking time to "rest in God" opens our awareness to the gift of God's presence.

The Centering Prayer Introductory Workshop, designed by Contemplative Outreach, gives comprehensive instruction about centering prayer and group practice of the prayer along with sharing and conversation.

"The root of prayer is interior silence. We may think of prayer as thoughts or feelings expressed in words. But this is only one expression. Deep prayer is the laying aside of thoughts. It is the opening of mind and heart, body and feeling--our whole being—to God, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond words, thoughts, and emotions."

-- Fr. Thomas Keating, Open Mind, Open Heart
