Description

ST BRIDE’S PUBLIC THEOLOGY LECTURE: PUTTING THE MIND INTO THE HEART

Centering Prayer and the Christian Contemplative Tradition

This talk will explore the practice of Centering Prayer from both a theological and neurological perspective. It will look at how this no-frills method of meditation in the Christian tradition differs from the standard ‘entry-level’ mindfulness practice with which it is often confused. It will also explore how Centering Prayer sheds new light on that ancient Christian intuition that contemplation is not simply a spiritual pathway or devotional practice but signifies rather the breakthrough to an entirely new level of consciousness—call it “nondual” if you like—characterised by the synchronous entrainment of brain and heart in a unified perceptual field.

The session will include both teaching and practice.

Cynthia Bourgeault, PhD,, is an Episcopal priest, retreat leader and the author of numerous books. She is internationally renowned for her work and teaching on Centering Prayer, which she describes as ‘a wonderful and radical way of seeing the world’.
