Transform Your Life Through Centering Prayer
(36 reads)
Tuesday evenings

The root of prayer is interior silence (Thomas Keating). Learn about Centering Prayer and foster a deeper connection with the Divine Presence, your True Self and others.

Whether you’re new to Centering Prayer or have years of experience, through the teaching and practice over the next weeks, you will have the opportunity to expand your understanding of this silent prayer method that is rooted in the Christian contemplative heritage. It is a gentle silent way of consenting to God’s presence and healing action within us. By taking time to “rest in God” each day, we open our awareness to the gift of God’s presence.


For more information or to register, contact S. Marcia Krause (510.502.5797) or Thanh Nguyen (408.493.3959)
