Quiet Saturday: Introduction to Centering Prayer

Introduction to Centering Prayer

Saturday, November 18, 2017

“Be still and know that I am God.” - Psalm 46:10

This is a contemporary presentation of an ancient discipline of Christian Prayer as silent communication with God beyond concepts, words and images.

The workshop will provide instruction, background, and an opportunity to practice the prayer. There will also be time for sharing and questions.

Led by Elyse Strathy and Johnson Ling, presenters commissioned by Contemplative Outreach.

  • Begins 9:30 am with a gathering for coffee; ends 4 pm.
  • Fee $30 if you bring a bag lunch ($25 for Associates and Oblates).
    A hot meal is an additional $15.
  • Registration deadline: November 11, 2017.

  • All retreats and quiet days at St. John’s Convent take place in the milieu of a contemporary monastic community which has a daily rhythm of prayer. All guests are invited to take part in the daily Eucharist, and those staying overnight may like to join us in the Divine Office (Morning Prayer, Evening Prayer, and Compline).
