CENTERING PRAYER

Centering Prayer is a form of meditation, of silent prayer, which prepares us to experience God’s presence within.  It fosters a personal relationship with the living God and moves us beyond conversation into silent communion with the Divine. It adds depth and meaning to all our prayer practices.  Centering Prayer is an ancient, contemplative tradition, rooted in the works of St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross, which has been updated to facilitate its use in the hectic lifestyles we lead today.  It transforms us so that we are able to live in calm and peace despite the chaos around us.
