Introduction to Centering Prayer – Portland 10-2019

The Introductory Workshop


The Centering Prayer Introductory Workshop familiarizes participants with the method of Centering Prayer and its conceptual background and offers two opportunities to experience the prayer. The workshop consists of four presentations led by Contemplative Outreach commissioned presenters.

1. Prayer as Relationship

2. The method of Centering Prayer

3. Thoughts and the Use of the Sacred Word

4. Deepening our Relationship with God


The Continuing Sessions


Following the Introductory Workshop, participants are invited to attend four to six Continuing Sessions which provide support, more background and the time needed to establish a personal Centering Prayer practice. The Sessions also include the opportunity to share the initial Centering Prayer experience with others who have made a similar commitment. Each Continuing Session is led by an experienced facilitator and includes a period of Centering Prayer and group discussion. Details regarding the Continuing Sessions will be offered by the Workshop presenter.
