Introduction to Centering Prayer (on-line, one-day workshop)

September 5, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm

From the comfort and shelter of your home, we invite you to join us for a one-day on-line Introduction to Centering Prayer workshop.  Centering Prayer is a form of Christian prayer rooted in the ancient Christian contemplative tradition.  Its purpose is to foster a deeper intimacy with Christ through the silence and stillness of contemplative prayer.

This workshop/retreat is designed for those new to Centering Prayer.  This one-day format will provide via Zoom video-conference the instruction that usually occurs over the course of a weekend.  A reliable internet connection with the capability for audio and video is required.  There will be opportunities for questions and discussion.

Saturday, September 5, 2020 – 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM.  Time for breaks will be provided.

Retreat Directors: Contemplative Outreach Birmingham Staff

Cost: $30
