Centering Prayer, modeled on Father Thomas Keating's teaching, is a method of silent meditation in which you seek to experience God's presence within yourself, while actively letting go of all other thoughts. This method of prayer is both acknowledging a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.
While centering prayer prescribes a twice-daily individual 'sit', the meaningfulness and power of the practice are magnified when experienced in community. Group prayer reminds you there is more beyond your experience, more beyond your comprehension, and offers spiritual kinship to support you in challenges and celebrate with you through milestones.
Spiritual Practice Mondays
will continue 7:00 p.m in-person. If you are interested in joining please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What happens at Spiritual Practice Mondays? We gather in a group facilitated by Eric. We start with check-in, and then Eric shares an inspirational quote to start the Centring Prayer Practice of a 20 min sit-in silence, in community. This is followed by the practice of Lectio Divina where a passage of scripture (that's being shared in church that coming Sunday) is read 3 times, with the opportunity for engagement through response & reflection.
We end the night with a contemplative walk on the Labyrinth.
If you haven't tried this before and would like to, we'd love to have you join us!
All are Welcome!
