Many of us struggle these days with fear, outrage and uncertainty in the face of personal and global change, loss and collapse. All these struggles share a single root: a sense of separation — from ourselves, from one another, and from God. And yet we know in our heart of hearts, and have experienced in deep contemplative practice, that everything is unified in God, the timeless reality in which we live and move and have our being.
This online workshop will explore Centering Prayer as a way to align us and our actions with unity, according to Jesus’ teachings. David will share stories, teachings and guided meditations to renew our experience of unity, opening us to presence, connection and love, the source of contemplative service in the world. We will also have time for small group sharing, and a period of Centering Prayer.
