Centering Prayer

Centering Prayer is a method of prayer coming out of the Christian tradition “ … that brings us into the presence of God and fosters the contemplative attitudes of listening and receptivity … [it prepares us to receive] the gift of contemplation by reducing the obstacles caused by the hyperactivity of our minds and of our lives … Centering Prayer is the Trinity living the divine life within us.”
– from Intimacy with God by Thomas Keating, one of the founders of Centering Prayer

A group of us meet twice a week in the church or, weather permitting, in the Memorial Garden outside and below the west transept of the Church of the Holy Spirit. After greeting one another, we sit together in holy silence for a half hour, opening ourselves to God’s presence.

Whomever you are, and wherever you are on your spiritual journey, we welcome you to experience with us the deep intimacy of Centering Prayer.
