On Wednesday mornings at 9:00am, a small group gathers for a time of Centering Prayer on Zoom.
Summer 2022 we are using the Seven Sacred Teachings as our readings for contemplation. We acklowledge the Creator that has given these teachings, and the people from whome they have been gifted to us. They are not ours... but may we strive to live these teachings in how we live our lives - with and for each other and all creation. Click HERE or on the Document below to download the readings for your own home practice.
The group begins with a short time of connection, opening prayer, readings, and then a musical or singing bowl invitation into a 20 minutes of silence in the practising centering prayer together. After our time of silence, we share in prayers for ourselves, for others and for the world.
About Centering Prayer from centeringprayer.com:
Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God's presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself. Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer. Rather, it adds depth of meaning to all prayer and facilitates the movement from more active modes of prayer — verbal, mental or affective prayer — into a receptive prayer of resting in God. Centering Prayer emphasizes prayer as a personal relationship with God and as a movement beyond conversation with God to communion with the Divine as we understand it.
Join us and find stillness in the midst of your busy week! All are Welcome.
