Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening Wisdom Practice Day: Live Zoom

August 28

Join us August 28 for our first bi-annual WISDOM COMMUNITY PRACTICE DAY sponsored by Wisdom Waypoints!

Cynthia Bourgeault will kick off our first ever Wisdom Community Practice Day, leading us as we begin. Cynthia will speak to where we are as a community and why these Wisdom practices are so essential. The whole day will be guided by four seasoned facilitators: Jeanine Siler Jones, Heather Ruce, Nan Delach and Susan Latimer. We will intentionally cultivate a Wisdom way of knowing through:

  • Instruction and practice of Centering Prayer Meditation
  • Lectio Divina
  • Body centering and sacred gesture
  • Mindful attentional practices/Inner Tasks
  • The Welcoming Practice

In Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening, we delve into both the tradition and method of this contemplative Christian prayer practice. As a group we will learn and practice together.

“At a time in our Christian life when the factional extremes seem intent on fighting each other to death while the rest of the world goes its way in massive indifference, I know from my own experience that there is something in this prayer that can restore harmony, dignity, and depth to our lived Christian community. It is this, more than anything else that I wish to share with you.” Cynthia Bourgeault (p. xiv)\

This Wisdom Practice Day is designed for anyone wanting to deepen into the experience of prayer and practice. As we come together in community, seeking inspiration and engaging practices for our awakening, we will leave with a felt sense of our deepening presence and how we can be of service in the world.

About Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening: “(Bourgeault’s) focus in this book is the contribution she perceives that Centering Prayer can make to the renewal and appropriate adaptation of the Christian contemplative heritage to the circumstances of our time… My special and heartfelt thanks to Cynthia for her monumental contribution to the better understanding of the Centering Prayer practice.
