About the event
Do you seek the still small voice of God? Do you seek a more intimate relationship with God? Come and find a way to deepen your relationship with God.
Centering Prayer is a method of consenting to God's presence and action within. It prepares us to receive God’s gift of contemplative prayer, which is an opening of our hearts and minds to God beyond thoughts, words, and emotions. This prayer practice, rooted in the Christian contemplative heritage, helps us embrace the process of transformation in Christ.
The Centering Prayer Introductory Program is designed to share the method of Centering Prayer and offer support in making it a part of daily life. The workshop includes themes of Prayer as Relationship, The Method of Centering Prayer, Thoughts and Use of the Sacred Word, and Deepening Our Relationship with God, along with time in Centering Prayer and the opportunity to submit questions. The presenters for this workshop will be Joanna Brunson and Vernon Dixon.
You will have the opportunity to attend continuing sessions after the workshop. These sessions include Centering Prayer, video featuring the teaching of Thomas Keating, discussion, and Q & A to deepen the understanding of Centering Prayer and provide support in establishing a regular Centering Prayer practice. Those attending the workshop will be surveyed to determine the group's preference for the day/time to meet and whether to have in person or Zoom sessions.
We encourage those of you who are already practicing Centering Prayer and are looking for an in-person experience to attend. Your presence will enrich our group.
Scholarships are available. Please contact Joanna Brunson for further details.
