We are all moving together through a difficult global rite of passage for civilization. It's a time of Sabbath, for taking refuge in God and deepening how we draw from the wellspring of our spiritual practices. We also need each other for community support. As we walk the road of Centering Prayer we can have questions. We all benefit from going back to the basic guidelines and looking together at how the method was explored by those who prayed this path before us like the movement's longtime leader Fr Thomas Keating.
Thanks to the support of our local Rochester NY Contemplative Outreach chapter, and my mentors in this training process, Tom Agness and Cheryl McElhatten.
