Day of Enrichment
THE NEUROPSYCHOLOGY OF CENTERING PRAYER
Presenter: Dr. Charlotte Tomaino
The focus of this day is to bring together and strengthen the area’s Christian Contemplative community at the Holy Family Retreat Center campus. This enriching day of Contemplative Retreat, Prayer, Teaching and Community promotes going deeper into Contemplative union with God and with one another.
Teilhard de Chardin has offered us a consciousness of physical matter being “divinized,” made sacred, which includes elevating the use of the matter of your brain. Physical matter is the furthest creation of formulated intention, focused attention and the directing of your energy. By using Fr. Thomas Keating’s definition of Centering Prayer as a contemplative practice, Dr. Tomaino will explore the physical healing, adaptation and growth in the nervous system that correspond to the experience of Centering Prayer.
