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.

Our workshop is designed to share the method of Centering Prayer and offer support in making it a part of daily life. It has two components:

  • The In-Person Introduction to Centering Prayer Workshop. Themes will include Prayer as Relationship, The Method of Centering Prayer, Thoughts and Use of the Sacred Word, and Deepening Our Relationship with God, time spent in Centering Prayer and the opportunity to submit questions. Ken Hatcher and Joanna Brunson will co-present. Both are prayerful Contemplative Outreach presenters.
  • Continuing Sessions will be scheduled via ZOOM. These sessions include Centering Prayer, video, discussion, and Q & A to deepen the understanding of Centering Prayer and provide support in establishing a regular Centering Prayer practice.

Those who are already practicing Centering Prayer and would like an in-person experience are welcome.

Light refreshments will be provided. Registration fee is $45.00.

COA is providing scholarships. If interested, please contact Joanna Brunson at or at 706.662.4384 if you have any questions.
