Centering Prayer and the Contemplative Tradition of Fr. Thomas Keating

Led by Pastor Maggie - Centering on contemplative prayer is an ancient tradition practiced by the very earliest Chrisitans. In many ways, it resembles meditation; practitioners focus inward, in silence, ultimately "resting in God." This four week class will introduce the teachings of Fr. Thomas Keating (a modern day contemplative) and give opportunity for practicing sitting in silence.
