Young Contemplatives Centering Prayer Facilitator Training Weekend – via Zoom

November 11, 2023 @ 11:00 am - November 12, 2023 @ 2:00 pm

COL Young Contemplatives is delighted to host an expanded weekend online event:

40s and Under Facilitator Training (two three-hour sessions) for our Younger Contemplatives community.

Saturday, November 11th & Sunday, November 12th, 11am – 2pm US Eastern Time.

If you are under 50 and feel called to become a facilitator, please join us. See event link to register below.

This two-part training will cover:
The Vision of Contemplative Outreach
The Purpose & Format of a Centering Prayer Group
What Facilitators ‘Do’
Guidelines for Faith-Sharing in Centering Prayer Groups
Growing as a Facilitator
and How to Get a Group Started (on Zoom or in-person)

There will be time for centering prayer practice and faith-sharing in breakout groups.

This Centering Prayer Facilitator Training is open to younger contemplatives with an interest in deepening their practice, being in community with other younger contemplatives and/or for those with a desire to become a Centering Prayer facilitator and start a group.

Come for both days or prioritize just one!

Saturday, November 11th
Will cover the method of Centering Prayer and exploration around ‘What Facilitators Do’ and ‘Faith Sharing Guidelines.’

Sunday, November 12th
Will feature our guest panelists Mark Dannenfelser and Heather Ruce to engage with us in conversation around the changing needs of young contemplatives. And Keith Kristich will facilitate a session on How to Get a Group Started and offer us insight into his ‘6 Week Experiment’ model.

We’re looking forward to being in community with you again!
