Workshop: Introduction to Centering Prayer – Portland

September 16, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Centering Prayer is a method designed to facilitate the development of contemplative prayer by preparing our faculties to receive this gift. It presents ancient Christian wisdom teachings in an updated form. Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer; rather it casts a new light and depth of meaning on them. It is at the same time a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship. This method of prayer is a movement beyond conversation with Christ to communion with him.

Centering Prayer is a receptive method of silent prayer. It does not replace other types of prayer, but adds depth and meaning to all prayer.

This workshop series introduces the method and history of Centering Prayer.

You will have opportunities to experience two sessions of the prayer during this workshop.
