"SECOND SATURDAYS OF CENTERING PRAYER"
Join us in our 2021-2022 season as we
"return to the basics"
as taught by Fr. Thomas Keating
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 13th
A MORNING OF CENTERING PRAYER
Two 30-min CP sessions plus a presentation:
"INTRODUCTION TO CENTERING PRAYER"
Part 2 of 3
Guided by the hand of our beloved teacher, Thomas Keating, Contemplative Outreach has developed a 7-session INTRODUCTION TO CENTERING PRAYER in which the important elements of this prayer practice are introduced.
In October we were introduced, in the first two conferences, to PRAYER AS RELATIONSHIP and THE METHOD OF CENTERING PRAYER, THE PRAYER OF CONSENT. (to review this material, albeit with a different presenter, click here)
****On November 13th we’ll continue the introductory material with conference 3, THOUGHTS and USE OF THE SACRED WORD and conference 4, DEEPENING OUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD. ****
In December we will view two of the six videos which Fr. Thomas created to deepen our understanding of this transformative prayer which can prepare us for contemplation.
Led by Mary Jane Ross
Starting in January 2022, we will begin a 5-month exploration of the supporting practices for Centering Prayer as developed by Contemplative Outreach, Ltd and
Fr. Thomas Keating: Lectio Divina, Active Prayer Sentence, Welcoming Prayer,
Guard of the Heart, and Forgiveness Prayer.
