Centering Prayer is a prayer practice which has evolved from the Contemplative Prayer practices of the ancients – dating back almost to the time of the Apostles. It experienced a revival in the 1970s primarily through the efforts of Thomas Keating, a Trappist monk, to reach out to young hippies & truth seekers who wanted to find God. The practice continues to meet the spiritual needs of present day seekers in our contemporary culture – growing in popularity and influence in the USA and well beyond our borders. It is a simple method of silent prayer, which, if practiced regularly, can open the heart to God. On Saturday mornings, a small group meets regularly at Christ Church Cathedral – in the Common Room (2nd floor) for an hour from 10:30 to 11:30AM.
