Are you interested in learning how to quiet your mind and
how to become more centered in your daily life?
“Centering Prayer Meditation is a simple method of meditation, traditionally called contemplative prayer in Christianity. Contemplative Prayer is the opening of mind and heart – our whole being – to God, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond thoughts, words and emotions. The practice can offer a way to the rest in divine, calm and clarity to these hectic and pressure of daily life.”
We invite you to join our Introductory Meditation Workshops (one evening, 2 hours) and our regular weekly group Meditation Practice Sessions (1 hr meetings once/week). Both are free. Beginners are welcome!
Intermediate meditators or members of our meditation practice sessions may also find our Meditation Resource Links page helpful.
