Explorations in Centering Prayer

Rooted in the ancient Christian tradition of Lectio Divina, Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of the Divine’s presence with us. Centering Prayer is grounded in relationship with God and is a practice to nurture that relationship. It offers a way to grow in intimacy with God, moving beyond conversation to communion.

The Heart of Living Fully

May is a month of springtime and fullness. In the film Camelot, Guinevere sings of it as a “The Lusty Month of May”. In Celtic cultures it was and is celebrated with rituals, dances and songs of life blooming in many meanings. In Christian traditions, it is dedicated to Mary – she who is the mother of the fullness of Divine Life incarnated.
