Advent Centering Prayer Workshop II

Saturday, December 16 from 10am–12pm

 

In the wilderness prepare the way of the Lord,

Make straight in the desert a highway for our God.

Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low;

the uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain.

Then the glory of the Lord shall be revealed…

Isaiah 40:3-5a

 

The voices of Advent belong to Isaiah and John the Baptist: “Prepare the way of the Lord!” And the practices of Advent belong to us. Centering Prayer is a fruitful way to practice preparing for the birth of Christ’s presence in you. Episcopal priest and Centering Prayer teacher Rev. Cynthia Bourgeault says “the most important thing in learning Centering Prayer is to forget everything you think you know about meditation…Centering Prayer is not about developing concentration, attaining clear mind, conscious presence, a strong witnessing ‘I,’ or some desired state. In Centering Prayer you merely practice and practice the core…motion: ‘let go, make space, unclench’ – thought by thought by thought…”  It is a method that “frees us from obstacles that prevent faith, hope, and love from unfolding within us.”

 

This second workshop will reinforce concepts introduced in the December 2 workshop, and provide opportunity for reflecting together on your experience if you have started a CP practice. First-timers and repeaters are welcome. Please sign up on the bulletin board in the hallway.
