Welcome to Contemplative Outreach of Piedmont NC. We offer programs and support for those who want to deepen their relationship with God through the practice of Centering Prayer.

Centering Prayer is a receptive method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God’s presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself.
