Centering Prayer

Centering Prayer is a receptive 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. This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.

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 Christ to communion with Christ.

A Pre-Lenten Urban Winter Retreat

The "Spiritual Journey" is a metaphor for how our beliefs change and develop throughout life.  We are all always "on the way," and eveyone travels at a different pace.  As seekers many of us find the more intimately we come to know God, the more intense the desire for an even deeper relationship becomes.
