Centering Prayer Meditation draws on the Christian tradition of meditation from the heart centre, using themes from spiritual writing and scripture, to help us experience beyond limited intellect, the total mind we call Heart. It’s a surrender method, a practice based on letting go of thoughts as they arise to deepen a way of being in God’s Presence. deepening a relationship with God.
Centering Prayer Meditation is an invitation for all with an open heart who are seeking to bring unity and wholeness into their daily life, whether or not from a Christian background.
