"SECOND SATURDAYS OF CENTERING PRAYER"
SATURDAY MAY 8th
A MORNING OF CENTERING PRAYER
Two 30-min CP sessions plus a presentation:
"Neurobiology & Divine Therapy: Silence + Science"
Part 2 (of 3)
From our earliest questions wondering, ‘Who am I?’ and ‘What am I?’ we receive messages that can either affirm goodness or corrupt our impressions of Self. If the early messages were too painful, we establish unproductive ways of coping. Yet the message we receive in the work of Divine Therapy—healing through seeking union with God the Divine Therapist in silent, contemplative practices---allows the gradual debridement, re-narration and repairing of wounds that impede our arrival toward our true divine Self. Collected spiritual and scientific works verify the same message, though use different language--that integration of the broken parts creates a healthy and whole system, as God intended, and that healing is always possible.
Join us in this three-part presentation and discussion about the integration of contemplative practice and our neurobiology (from cells in the nervous system to interpersonal relationships) as we continue our path toward realizing our union with the Divine.
