Centering Prayer meditation is a method of receptive, silent prayer that prepares us to open to the gift of contemplative prayer . . . a movement beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Christ.  This class will explore the subtleties and nuances of Centering Prayer as the prayer deepens; teachings on Witnessing Presence are included.

The Welcoming (Prayer) Practice will also be introduced.

Listening With the Ear of the Heart

Contemplative Dialogue

Thomas Merton
 

Living contemplatively calls us to slow down, pay attention, look closely, and listen deeply.  This conscious way of being together in dialogue —- listening with the ear of our heart or Contemplative Dialogue —- is based on a method originally developed by The Thomas Merton Society. Group classes are available upon request.

Contact Beth for more details and to make arrangements for your group.

Private instruction in Contemplative Dialogue is also available, working one-on-one during a Spiritual Direction session. See Spiritual Direction page on website for more information or to schedule a session.

Spiritual Direction as Contemplative Practice

 

Within each of us lies a yearning and a deep desire to find meaning in our lives, grow closer to God, and come to know our True Self.  Since the earliest centuries of Christianity, spiritual ammas and abbas (mothers and fathers) have served as spiritual directors---encouraging others in their search for God.  This 2-session class will look particularly at "spiritual direction for contemplatives".

This class is available upon request. Contact Beth for more details and to make arrangements for your group.
