Contemplative Outreach of Portland relies on financial support from members to allow us to continue operations. Our income comes from selling books on spiritual topics at our events, conducting workshops, speaker series, special events and retreats and through financial gifts from our donors.

Note: Donations to Contemplative Outreach of Portland are not tax deductible. If you need the tax deduction, you can donate to Contemplative Outreach Ltd at

You may help to reclaim and renew the contemplative dimension of the Gospel through your gift today. Here’s how:

In addition to furthering our vision through teaching Centering Prayer and supporting those on the contemplative spiritual journey, the chapter has to pay for rent of a small office/storage space, our phone line, Web site, newsletters, offer small stipends for workshop and program presentations and provide partial scholarships to our events for those who ask.

We also support the International Resource Center of Contemplative Outreach, Ltd. whenever it is financially possible. Through your generosity, Centering Prayer can continue to find its way into new lives every day. Please keep our work in your heart and prayers.

“More than ever I feel your friendship and support and look forward to communion together in the Body of Christ, because whenever you sit down to prayer, you’re in communion and union with everyone else, past or even future people who haven’t even been born yet.”

“Everything is now in the heart and mind of God. Let us often go to be refreshed and to be encouraged by each other’s fidelity to the Centering Prayer practice.”  

Fr. Thomas Keating
