This Sunday, a one-day introduction to Centering Prayer…
This is a final reminder to attend our one-day introduction to the Christian meditation technique known as Centering Prayer. Arising from the Trappist monastic tradition as a way to introduce non-monastics to contemplative prayer, Centering Prayer focuses on a gesture of inner surrender. The technique is simple to learn, easy to fit into a busy life and practical. It doesn’t require commitment to traditional Christian doctrine, but it is also very compatible with the heart of the Christian tradition.
This one-day session gives you all you need to get started with Centering Prayer, including:
- Centering Prayer and the practice of intentional silence, discovering wordless communion
- theory and method of Centering Prayer
- handling thoughts during prayer time
- carrying Centering Prayer into daily life
There will be several opportunities to practice Centering Prayer together and the day finishes with an optional contemplative eucharist service.
Meditation cushions, stools and chairs are provided at the venue but if you have a favourite seat for meditation feel free to bring it along.
We’d love to see you there.

We are accepting donations to help cover hall hire and other costs. If you’d like a suggestion, $20 would certainly help out. Please bring cash with you on the day.
