Resting in God: An Invitation to Centering Prayer
August 29 @ 9:30 am - 3:00 pm$60
“In returning and rest, you shall be saved;
in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.”
– Isaiah 30:15
St. Gregory the Great wrote that contemplation is like “resting in God.” In Centering Prayer, we’ve come to understand that “rest” is two-sided. First, we can find comfort and peace in the Silence of the prayer but, equally important, “rest” also involves a surrender. Consenting to God’s Presence and action in our lives opens us up to the Sacred and allows Spirit to emerge in and through us in new and grace-filled ways.
Come learn about and experience Centering Prayer. No experience is required. The day will be structured for those with little or no experience as well as those who want to renew or revitalize their Centering Prayer practice.
The schedule will include an introduction to the day’s theme, an overview of the practice, two 20-minute Centering Prayer sessions, suggestions for daily practice, and question and answer time. Lunch will be included.
