Centering Prayer Workshop: Transformed By Love

When: Saturday, February 3, 2024, 10 am – 12 pm EST
Where: Virtual Zoom Gathering
Contribution: $37
Registration: Required, Register Now

At the start of this new year nothing could be more essential than facing these challenging times with love and peace, but how?

How do you overcome the anxieties and stressors of daily life and at the same time nurture the relationships that are most important?

The answer is through prayer and more time with God, but how do you make that happen? Truth is it’s so easy to get caught up in distractions and chaos and spend less time nurturing the relationships that are foundational to living a life of love and peace.

If you get quiet enough you will sense God beckoning you into a deeper relationship with Him. God longs for you, is waiting for you. God sees you and hears your unspoken and spoken prayers. He hears the cries of your heart . And He remains waiting for you. Not just to answer you but to love you into the abundant life, peace and wholeness you were created to live.

Are you ready to go deeper into your relationship with God and let His love transform you? This workshop is for you.

Are you ready to unpack Centering Prayer and learn how it’s all about relationship? As you spend time nurturing and deepening your connection with God, you will see your entire life and all other relationships transform.

Whether Centering Prayer has been a daily or inconsistent practice for you matters not. This workshop will support you right where you are.

Included: Live Zoom Workshop Experience with teaching, prayer time, Q&A, and open discussion.
Replay: Link to rewatch the workshop at your leisure.

A Simple Life-Changing Prayer by Jim ManneyHolding onto God is the only way to live through the tumult of this world. Yet, anything or anyone at any given moment can hook us into fear, doubt, anxiety, anger, etc.

In and of ourselves it might seem impossible to sustain our faith and live in peace, yet through God all things are possible. You were not called to be tossed around by life, like a leaf in the wind. Trying to figure it out on your own is not your destiny.  

Come be with like-minded soul friends as we gather together to: 

  • Unpack the Examen contemplative prayer practice
  • Learn how to incorporate Examen into daily life
  • Process the effects of this life-changing prayer

We will use this very short (only 85 pages) yet profound book available via Amazon: A Simple Life-Changing Prayer by Jim Manney

If you’re unable to attend a session you signed up for, you can attend the other time slot available or receive a Zoom replay link.

Sign up now as there are a limited number of seats available.
