About this Event

This is an event for Chichester Clergy.

This workshop will discuss Christian contemplative prayer. The focus will be on two famous figures in the tradition, both celebrated for their profound spiritual insight - Evagrius in the East and Augustine in the West.

Two traditional methods of prayer will be examined, the Orthodox ‘Jesus Prayer’ and the modern practice of ‘centering prayer.’ We will also look at the explosion of interest in mindfulness and consider critically how it relates to the awareness of God that is the goal of contemplative prayer.

Since the workshop will not only be theoretical but practical, two short periods of contemplative prayer will be built into the day.

Led by Rev Dr Earl Collins
