About the Event
Join us for a morning of Centering Prayer learning and practice, led by Rita Weick and Bette Butler through Oregon Contemplative Outreach. This is an opportunity for those new to Centering Prayer to begin their practice and for those with an existing contemplative practice to meet others and practice together. In person only.
Centering Prayer is a receptive method of silent prayer in which we experience God's presence within us. Developed by Fr. Thomas Keating and his Trappist brothers, Centering Prayer adapts the ancient contemplative practices of monastic Christianity to today’s sensibilities.
Following the mini-retreat, we will build on the practice with four to six weekly Centering Prayer sits. These optional gatherings will be offered Thursday mornings beginning Sept. 21, from 10 a.m. to noon in the Barclay Library upstairs, facilitated by Vicki Hess-Smith through Contemplative Outreach of Portland.
