Group Description

CENTERINGPRAYER for BEGINNERS: A Contemplative Living Community in the Christian Contemplative Tradition, is an unmoderated ecumenical (Christian) mailing list grounded in the Christian contemplative heritage. The list members are committed to the renewal of the contemplative dimension of the Gospel through the teaching and practice of Centering Prayer as taught by Dom Thomas Keating, OCSO, and his worldwide organization Contemplative Outreach, Ltd. This group is dedicated to those who are BEGINNERS and desire a community to teach, encourage and support them in their practice. The list offers the following schedule: Introductory Workshop, as taught by Contemplative Outreach Ltd., Discussion of the book "Open Mind, Open Heart" by Thomas Keating, and a final Introductory Workshop.
If you have been practicing for more than a year check out our list CenteringPrayerTwo on Yahoo. Abbot Thomas Keating is our teacher, mentor, friend and inspiration.
Centering Prayer is patterned on the formula given by Jesus in Matthew 6:6. "If you want to pray, enter your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you."
Centering prayer is a method; it is also a prayer of consenting to God's presence and action within.
To subscribe to this CENTERING PRAYER List please follow the instructions of Yahoo offered below. We may ask you for a brief description of your interest in Centering Prayer and the time that you have practiced it. We hope to be able to welcome you to our cyberspace community. We will welcome you as Christ (Rule of Benedict).
