A Contemplative Reformation: Parish Life - Let’s imagine the living experience of Christian community through the lens of a contemplative posture rather than simply a program maintenance model.
Contemplative Outreach's workshops offer instruction and continuing support for the contemplative practices of Centering Prayer, Lectio Divina, and the Welcoming Prayer. Workshops are facilitated by trained presenters and are open to anyone.
James Baldwin: Contemplative Prophet of Love - In this workshop, we will explore the work of American writer and activist James Baldwin through the lens of mysticism, prophecy, and love.
Exploring the Wisdom of the Gospels - An exploration of the Gospels’ Wisdom Parables will give us an understanding of Jesus as “Wisdom Master.”
10:00 AM 3:00 PM
Be still and know that I am God. Psalm 46:10
"Centering Prayer is a discipline to foster interior transformation, initiated by God and leading, if we consent, to divine union. One’s way of seeing reality changes, which empowers one to perceive and respond to everyday life with sensitivity to the dive presence in, through and beyond everything."
- Thomas Keating, Open Mind, Open Heart
