What we're about

Pastor Gae Chalker and Dr. Matthew Miller lead the North Shore Centering Prayer and Meditation group every first and third Sundays of the month, from 4:00-5:00 pm in the sanctuary of the historic Christ Memorial Episcopal Church in Kilauea. We begin with music, a meditation sit, and weather-permitting, sometimes we walk the labyrinth.

All faith traditions are welcome to join us.

​Centering Prayer is a wonderful way to quiet our minds and be present to our God. There are many gifts that come with a centering practice: relieving stress and anxiety, creative inspiration, awakening of the senses, and a sense of becoming one with Mary, Jesus and our God.

Dr. Matt Miller is best known from Sunday worship as the guitarist with the beautiful bass voice, who wrote several music settings to the Advent scriptures. Dr. Matt graduated from UCLA with a PhD in Medieval English Literature in 1993, and decided the most useful thing he could do would be to teach people literacy skills. He did so until 2016, working at various locations including Island School and Kauai Community College. Now he is doing something even more useful — teaching Centering Prayer, a discipline he says is “paradise.”
