How do I learn the method of Centering Prayer?

Centering Prayer can be learned in several ways.  The most common way is by attending a local “Introduction to Centering Prayer” retreat/workshop.  These workshops are usually given in a one-day format, with subsequent follow-up sessions to help you establish your daily practice.  You can search our online calendar to see if there is a workshop near you.

You can also learn the method through an online course.  Contemplative Outreach partners with both Sounds True and Spirituality and Practice to provide these online Centering Prayer courses. 

Finally, an in-home package was created in partnership with Sounds True so that people could learn the method at home through DVDs, CDs and a guidebook.  The package is available in our store.
