Welcoming Prayer Workshop

Consenting to God’s Presence and Action On the Go

Saturday, June 3, 2017

St. Walburga Monastery

851 North Broad Street, Elizabeth, NJ 07208

9:30 A.M. – 3:00 P.M.

Registration and Coffee begins at 9:00 A.M.

Centering Prayer is about “letting go” in receptivity.  The Welcoming Prayer is about “letting go” in activity.  It is a method of consenting to God’s presence and action in our physical and emotional reactions to events and situations in daily life. Its purpose is to deepen our relationship with God through consenting in the ordinary activities of our day.  This Prayer helps to dismantle the emotional programs of the false-self system and to heal the wounds of a lifetime by addressing them where they are stored – in the body. It contributes to the process of transformation in Christ initiated in Centering Prayer.

The practice of Welcoming Prayer is an opportunity to make choices free of the false-self system — responding instead of reacting to the present moment. Through the action of the Holy Spirit, our practice empowers us to take appropriate action as freely and lovingly as possible in any situation that presents itself in our lives.

It is helpful for this workshop to have experience with Centering Prayer.

Presenter: Therese M. Saulnier has been praying Centering Prayer for 29 years and has been teaching Centering Prayer and other contemplative prayer practices for over 25 years.  She holds a Master of Arts degree in Theology from Fordham University and works as a web developer for a major corporation.  As a contemplative in everyday life, Therese offers a practical perspective and practical advice in living a contemplative life in 21st century America.
