Inner Peace Through Centering Prayer Workshop

You are invited to participate in a special workshop series and learn and experience the transforming impact  of Contemplative Prayer

 


Workshop I: Saturday, May 12, 2018
Workshop II: Saturday, June 2, 2018
9:30 AM – 12:30 PM
Christ Our Light Parish Center

Responsibilities and demanding life circumstances pull us through our fast-paced days. Stress, anxiety, and sensory overload, internal noise of continual thoughts, worries, and distractions take away our energy. We long to stay centered in Christ and connect with God. There is a way to be in the world but not be consumed by it.  Whether you already have a contemplative prayer practice or are just beginning these Centering Prayer Workshops are for you.  Centering Prayer is a deeply profound spiritual discipline, yet freeing in its simplicity.
