Embracing transformation through Centering Prayer

As part of the international Contemplative Outreach Ltd., we in Atlanta and the northern Georgia region are a network of communities and individuals seeking the guidance of the Holy Spirit to contribute to the renewal of the Christian contemplative tradition through the practice of Centering Prayer.

Coronavirus Update: Because the number of cases in Georgia are continuing to increase and have not begun to decline, we are not meeting face-to-face through the summer. Until we have universal testing, enough protective gear,  and sufficient sanitizing materials, we will not hold physical group meetings. Presently we are meeting through virtual online sources wherever possible.  Contact a highlighted Centering Prayer group leader listed under Centering Prayer groups above for further details or Maggie at if you would like to join a virtual group online.

             We are asking everyone to continue to work together to stop the spread of the virus. We are being called to a new challenge we have never had before that will determine our existence: for all to step up and work together for the good of all. May we do what we can with what gifts we have to benefit all and bring us safely through this crisis. 

"God is total unity… God is also infinite diversity and infinite possibility at the same time...where there is unity, diversity becomes complementarity, and it’s no longer divisive but enriching. This is the insight that is missing in the human [race] now… The difference between races or colors of people is so infinitesimal, it’s absolutely ridiculous to make any division…the kingdom is not just for you and [me]. Unless everyone else is saved too, you can’t be perfectly happy. That is the mystery of the unity of the human family that has not been fully understood or preached up till now." Thomas Keating, "Living in the Presence of God Day after Day" YouTube video 

Vision Theological Principle 12: The practice of Centering Prayer deepens our awareness of the oneness of all creation and our compassion for the whole human family.


At Contemplative Outreach Atlanta, we teach the method of Centering Prayer to promote peace, contemplative prayer, and a deeper relationship with God. The North Georgia branch of the international Contemplative Outreach Ltd. organization, we are nondenominational and welcome all faiths and all people to our workshops and meetings. 

Do you seek the still small voice of God?  Do you seek a more intimate relationship with God? Centering Prayer, a prayer of consent, is sitting silently in the presence of God in a loving relationship. It is both a relationship with God and a discipline in total service to the relationship.
