Centering Prayer is a silent prayer practice that can move you toward a profound relationship with the Spirit of God within. It is a way of praying that opens the door to the Divine Indwelling—the ground of our being.

A Prayer Practice Inspired by the Christian Mystics

Father Thomas Keating, answering a life calling, sought to renew a prayer practice that goes beyond asking for aid or offering praise—one that invites you to enter into a deeper relationship with God. Based on the wisdom sayings of Jesus and inspired by teachings from the classic 14th-century text The Cloud of Unknowing, Saint John of the Cross, Saint Teresa of Avila, Thomas Merton, and others. Centering Prayer is a method with four guidelines that has sparked the modern renewal of contemplative Christianity. “Centering Prayer does not replace other types of prayer,” teaches Keating, “Rather, the practice gives a new depth of meaning to all forms of prayer.”

The schedule for this program is Saturday, 9:30 am – 3:30 pm, and Sunday, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm.  Lunch is included on Saturday.

This workshop will consist of presentations by Suzanne Dunn and Jeannette Love and listening to DVD presentations by Fr. Keating.

Suzanne Dunn and Jeannette B. Love are meditators, Centering Prayer facilitators, and co-leaders of the Church of the Beatitudes.
