An introduction to the basics of Centering Prayer - a silent meditation practice facilitating our consent to the presence and action of the divine life within us. This workshop will be suitable for those new to contemplative practice or looking for a fresh approach; as a refresher for experienced CP practitioners; and for people in 12-step recovery developing their step 11 practice. We’ll look at the nuts and bolts of the method of centering prayer including: How to work with a sacred word as a way of orientating towards a sacred intent. Prayer as entering into a relationship, rather than as something we ‘do’.  Intentional silence as a way of deepening our intimacy with both ourselves and God, and indeed all of creation.  What we mean by ‘letting go of thoughts’ and how the gentle practice of Centering Prayer facilitates this.

How a practice such as Centering Prayer shows up in our life as an increased capacity for compassion and skillful action.  The workshop will be presented by Liz Day, who has been practising centering prayer for 16 years. During this time she has offered and taken part in many workshops, groups and retreats on centering prayer and the Christian contemplative tradition, and she has studied with national and international teachers. The day will include talks, practice periods and group discussion. A simple soup lunch will be provided, as well as tea and coffee.  This workshop is offered on a gift basis - pay what feels right for you. We are asking for a £15 payment up front as a token of commitment and to reserve your place - this can be revised - up or down - on the day.
