This morning will include input on Centering Prayer as the core practice of Christian contemplative life, as well as engagement in Centering Prayer practice. The speaker will also describe Centering Prayer as a communal prayer and communal divine presence, leading us into the practice of praying with a communal intention. We will embark on the making of the two greatest commandments into one: “Love Your God with all your heart, and soul, and strength…. And love your neighbor as your Self” (Mk 12:28-30).  These two will become one in us as we deepen our relationship with our true reality in the prayer we will share during this program.  Fee:  $25
