We may think of prayer as thoughts or feelings 

expressed in words.  But this is only one expression of prayer.  In the Contemplative tradition, contemplative prayer is considered to be the pure gift of God.  It is the opening of mind and heart--our whole being to God, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond thoughts, words and emotions.  This Centering Prayer Workshop consists of this one-day program and 4(2 hour) weekly follow-up sessions.  Bring a brown bag lunch.  Drinks provided.

Presenters:  Roseanne Havird and Eric Frankhouser

Fee:  Free-will offering.  Please register at least 2 days ahead.
