Centering Prayer Group
Facilitator Formation/Training
Level I Workshop
July 23-August 29, 2022

Join us starting July 23, 2022

We are seeking to build new connections (and strengthen existing ones) within the Northern Virginia centering prayer community. If you are curious about starting/leading a centering prayer group locally, or are already leading a group and would like to freshen your skills, please prayerfully considering joining us in this training!

The purpose of the Facilitator Formation Level I Workshop is to empower people with a strong commitment to the practice of Centering Prayer to lead Centering Prayer groups. 

The Level I workshop consists of 10 training modules organized around three topics: the spirituality of facilitating a Centering Prayer group, the basics of facilitating a Centering Prayer group, and how to use the Facilitator Handbook and other resources provided.

Who should attend?

Present Facilitators (leaders/hosts) of Centering Prayer groups in the Northern Virginia region, anyone wishing to be a Facilitator, or anyone who is curious, but undecided.  

There will be a nominal fee of $20 to cover costs of providing a Facilitator Handbook for each participant.   Scholarships available.
