Centering Prayer

Centering Prayer Intensives

Rest in the Stillness of Prayer

Centering Prayer is a gentle, silent method of consenting to God’s presence and healing action within us. Based on rich Christian contemplative heritage, Centering Prayer offers us a way to be open to God. By taking time to “rest in God” each day, we open our awareness to the gift of God’s presence.


Contemplative Outreach hosts several extended Centering Prayer Intensives throughout the year. Please visit our Retreat Calendar page for scheduled dates.
