What we're about

This is a group for the practice of Christian contemplative meditation, also known as silent or noetic prayer.

Those who practice or who want to learn Centering Prayer (https://www.contemplativeoutreach.org/category/category/centering-prayer), Christian Meditation (https://wccm.org/)
or other forms of contemplative prayer are welcome.

There are no denominational requirements or restrictions. Open and welcoming. Practitioners are encouraged to attend church and have the support of their pastor, priest or spiritual director.

Prayer will last approximately 20 minutes. Then there will be time for a short discussion.

Nothing else is taught at this group other than the very fundamentals of the prayer.
