8th Centering Prayer Online Retreat
With Fr. Jos Tharakan
July 31, 2020
Fr. Thomas Keating describes Centering Prayer as the keystone of a comprehensive commitment to the contemplative dimension of the Gospel, manifesting as a deepening union with Christ, and practical caring for others. This way of praying in silence opens our hearts and minds to consent to God’s presence and action beyond words, responding to the call of the Holy Spirit.
In this webinar, you will be introduced to the concepts and methods of centering prayer. Each Centering Prayer session will be followed by a twenty minutes sit to practice the same from the comfort of your home. PDF class notes will be provided by email at the end of the program so that you will have your own notes for further study and reference. The retreat director will be available for questions and answers while the webinar is in progress as well.
