“Centering Prayer is a receptive method of silent prayer in which we experience God’s presence within us and is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship” (Father Thomas Keating, OCSO, a founding member and spiritual guide of Contemplative Outreach).

“Be Still and Know That I am God….” Psalm 46
