Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God’s presence within us. This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.

This class comes during the Season of Lent and provides an opportunity to learn about Centering Prayer or to renew and deepen your practice – to be with God beyond concepts, words and images; listening with “the ear of the heart”. In addition to this Class, at no additional cost, continuing sessions are offered to help you establish and deepen a daily practice. More information will be provided after you register.

The class will be presented by The Rev. Dr. Deborah Conner and Peggy Geiger. Dr. Conner is the Coordinator of Contemplative Outreach of Piedmont NC and the Pastor for Congregational Care at Myers Park Presbyterian Church. Mrs. Geiger is a retired educator.

Registration will open in early 2020.
