Join us for Centering Prayer, a contemplative practice from the Christian tradition. Centering Prayer is a silent, meditative practice that leads to a sense of resting in God, in pure Presence beyond words and concepts. Each session opens with check-ins, followed by a Psalm reading and twenty minutes of Centering Prayer. A brief sharing time follows. All are welcome regardless of spiritual orientation.

For more information about Centering Prayer, this flyer has an excellent overview of the Method. You might also read more on Contemplative Outreach’s site.

 


Introduction to Social Meditation (dates and time TBA)

While the pandemic rages on, we are also in the midst of a mindfulness meditation revolution. This ancient spiritual practice has found modern applications as a tool for stress management, psychological wellness, and awakening. Neuroscience is discovering

that mindfulness meditation causes fundamental changes to our brain and nervous system that restore our natural balance and allow healing of stress-induced states.

In this experiential program, you will explore an emerging form of mindfulness meditation that is particularly suited to our social, relational nature. Called Social Mindfulness Meditation, this approach to meditation leads to inner peace as well as a felt-sense of connection to others that can be deeply renewing after weeks of social distancing. In this introduction, you’ll learn more about how social meditation works as well as the neuroscience behind the practice. Please wear comfortable clothing suitable for light stretching. No prior experience with meditation is necessary.
