Contemplative prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to experience God’s presence within. This method is not meant to replace other forms of prayer; rather, it adds depth of meaning to all prayer and facilitates a process of interior transformation. According to Fr. Thomas Keating—founder of the Centering Prayer Movement and Contemplative Outreach—“Our way of seeing reality changes in this process; and a restructuring of consciousness takes place which empowers us to perceive, relate, and respond with increasing sensitivity to the divine presence in, through, and beyond everything that exists.” This dynamic process evolves not by strategy, but through a personal love-relationship with God.
Please join us for 20 minutes of contemplative prayer, as well as reflective reading, discussion, and support. Beginners are welcome and encouraged to attend.
