Day of Reflection: Introduction to Centering Prayer Workshop 

Directed by Maggie Winfrey and Carl McColman

Centering Prayer is a simple method of prayer, rooted in ancient Christian tradition. “… not so much the absence of thoughts as the detachment from them. It is the opening of mind and heart, body and emotions – the whole body - to God …beyond words, thoughts, and emotions.” by Thomas Keating in Open Mind, Open Heart.
