Centering Prayer

Find your inner silence

Consider joining us for Centering Prayer.

Here are two explanations of what draws people to this practice:

  • “God’s native language is silence, and I want to develop a deeper relationship with God.  In Centering Prayer I challenge myself to understand and be comfortable in silence – not just with my mind, but with my being.”
  • “Before practicing Centering Prayer I thought I knew what mysticism was, but it was only an intellectual understanding.  Now I understand it with my heart.  It also helped me to understand and appropriately draw from other mystical traditions like yoga and some Buddhist constructs to enhance my Christianity and Catholicism.”

Contemplative Prayer Group

Meet with other spiritual seekers to discuss a book about centering prayer, and then practice Centering Prayer for 20 minutes.

Beginning in March 2020, we are reading Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening by Cynthia Bourgeault. 

  • Saint Basil the Great, Basilica's Ground Level

  • Fridays, 10:00¬11:00am

Be still and know that I am God--Ps 46:10
