Centering Prayer one day intensive


The Centering Prayer introductory workshop I held in Nov last year attracted around ten people but quite a few people couldn’t make it on that date, so I’m repeating the workshop.

This is a one-day introduction to the Christian meditation technique known as Centering Prayer. Arising from the Trappist monastic tradition as a way to introduce non-monastics to contemplative prayer, Centering Prayer focuses on the ancient Christian spiritual practice called “kenosis” or emptying. The technique is simple to learn, easy to fit into a busy life and practical. It doesn’t require any commitment to traditional Christian doctrine, but it is also very compatible with the heart of the Christian tradition.
This one-day session gives you all you need to get started with Centering Prayer, including:
  • Centering Prayer and the practice of intentional silence, discovering wordless communion
  • theory and method of Centering Prayer
  • handling thoughts during prayer time
  • carrying Centering Prayer into daily life
  • several opportunities to practice Centering Prayer together
The day includes a simple lunch and finishes with an optional contemplative eucharist service.
The fee covers the cost of the venue, materials and catering. If you’d like to come and money is an issue, please get in touch and we’ll work something out.

Please consider joining me and sharing this delightful, simple, profound practice.

With love,
Father Tim Mansfield
