Divine Economy Funds Inquiry
Guided by the Spirit and in support of Thomas Keating’s teaching on the Divine Economy (which you can find here), Contemplative Outreach, Ltd., is seeking to discern the financial needs of the community, informed by the values of wholeness and equity.
As a way to lean into our commitment to the Divine Economy, we offer you the following invitation:
Is there an idea you have for expanding a Centering Prayer-related offering in your area – or any of our core practices of Lectio Divina and Welcoming Prayer? A program, a retreat, an event? Some kind of support or spiritual enrichment for contemplative practitioners? Some effort aimed to include the marginalized and underrepresented? If so, we are inviting practitioners of Centering Prayer from our global community to make a request for financial support from our common purse. All requests are to be in alignment with the Contemplative Outreach vision, principles and guidelines, which you can review here.
This invitation is in addition to the availability of scholarships. Two different kinds of scholarships are offered:
- Scholarships for online programs and enrichment. Read more here.
- Matching scholarships offered for in-person retreats. Read more here.
Finance — green energy of Spirit – is being entrusted to us as an organism, largely because of the generous and ongoing giving of individuals who are our community — people like you. We thank you for your continued support and seek now to share these funds we so gratefully steward.
