AN INTRODUCTION TO CENTERING PRAYER
A Workshop Presented by Contemplative Outreach of New Jersey
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 16, 2019, 9 AM – 12 PM
(Registration and Coffee beginning at 8:30 AM)
Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of experiencing God's
presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself. This
method is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.
Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer. Rather, it adds depth of meaning to all
prayer and facilitates the movement from more active modes of prayer — verbal, mental or affective
prayer — into a receptive prayer of resting in God.
The workshop will include presentations, discussion and opportunities to practice Centering Prayer
Follow-Up: 6 weeks of Continuing Sessions of the Introductory Workshop will be held at ND to help
support and deepen your prayer practice.
