Day of Contemplative Prayer
Centering Prayer: Our Practice, Our World
"In our encounter with God in Centering Prayer
our whole being is opened up to experience ourselves united,
not only with God, but with all creation."
- Basil Pennington (adapted)
Please join us for an afternoon of Centering Prayer and Community
Sunday March 3, 2019 from 1-5 pm
Cenering Prayer is sometimes spoken of as the Divine Therapy. We usually reflect on this aspect of our practice in reference to our own spiritual journey. Today we continue our exploration of a wider version of God's healing action, and consider how our daily practice may actually be a channel for the Divine Presence to bring healing to our world.
Our time together will include two periods of Centering Prayer, a short talk, a video, and conversation.
