Tuning to God: An Introduction to Centering Prayer 

Saturday, March 4th; 9am-Noon
Facilitated by Betsy Meager, CSJ, and Michele Gossman


“I have come to believe that the true mystics are not those who contemplate holiness in isolation, reaching godlike illumination in serene silence, but those who manage to find God in a life filled with noise, the demands of other people and relentless daily duties that can consume the self…”   ~Kathleen Norris

 Most of us don’t live in monasteries where prayer is regular, scheduled, and intricately woven into the pattern of life.  Our lives tend to be more of the “filled with noise” variety!

We can, however, learn to break our habitual ways of seeing and succumbing to distraction by fidelity to a brief, simple prayer practice with deep roots in the Christian tradition: Centering Prayer.

 This daily tuning of our hearts to the nudgings of God can build our resilience and equanimity, making the “demands of other people and relentless daily duties” less of a burden.  Come to learn about and experience this simple, yet profound prayer practice.  Come to know how brief interior silence can both be done and bear fruit in the world.

Registration is $25 when received by February 17; $30 thereafter. Light refreshments and materials are included.  

Please register by February 24.  Payment in full is due prior to arrival.
