Event description
This is a one-day introductory course in Centering Prayer, led by the Revd Mel King

About this Event

Centering Prayer is both a practice and a relationship which prepares us to awaken to the gift of contemplation and to rest in God. It is a discipline of intentional silence, and a way of surrender to the divine presence. It is complementary to other forms of prayer.

Centering Prayer was developed in the mid-1970's by Fr Thomas Keating OCSO and other Trappist monks of St Joseph’s Abbey, Massachussetts. Firmly rooted in ancient Christian tradition, and the teachings of Jesus, it is inspired by the 14th century anonymous English spiritual classic, The Cloud of Unknowing.

This workshop is both for those who are drawn to silent prayer and would like to explore further, and also for those who may already have a practice of silent prayer. Participants will be provided with both the tools to practise Centering Prayer and the conceptual background. A 4-6 week follow–up course is available, to be arranged locally.

Refreshments will be available throughout the day, but please bring a packed lunch.

Please note that parking at the Priory is very limited so if you are travelling by car, please do consider using the Park and Ride. There are also public carparks nearby, and the train station is just a ten-minute walk.

Mel is an Anglican priest in the Diocese of York. She is a trained presenter, and the Regional Co-ordinator in the North-East, for Contemplative Outreach in Britain: www.contemplativeoutreach.org.uk
