Centering Prayer Group

 Every Saturday morning 

Join fellow spiritual seekers every Saturday morning for a group contemplative practice – a wonderful way to find support and training for your Centering Prayer practice. All mindfulness practices & religious traditions are welcome! No experience necessary

 

Centering Prayer, developed by Fr. Thomas Keating and his Trappist brothers at St. Joseph’s Abbey in Spencer, Massachusetts, updated the ancient contemplative practices of monastic Christianity to fit active, modern lifestyles.

If you're new to Centering Prayer, we recommend The Path of Centering Prayer by David Frenette or Centering Prayer & Inner Awakening by Cynthia Bourgeault.

Cornerstone Community

The Rule of St. Benedict

Members of the Cornerstone Community strive to follow the path of Jesus Christ through the practice of prayer, study, community, and action.

For Cornerstone, the world is our cloister. We find that applying the Benedictine vows and practices to contemporary life helps us live in the world with purpose and joy. Members of our lay order commit to a balanced practice of regular prayer, study and work. We meet in small groups, none larger than ten participants, who meet weekly to support each other in our Benedictine life.
