Reflections on the Spiritual Journey: A Conversation via Zoom
April 17, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am$50.00
9am – 11am Central Time
Offered online via Zoom
The language of the “spiritual journey” is central to Thomas Keatings’ contemplative vision and his writings. And he sees the practice of Centering Prayer as a good way to further that journey.
In this workshop we will have an unstructured conversation about the journey and the practice of Centering Prayer. It is open to the curious beginner, the experienced practitioner, and those in-between.
Centering Prayer is a form of Christian silent mediation where one lets go of thoughts during periods of prayer typically lasting 20 minutes. It is rooted in the self-emptying love that forms the heart of Jesus’ teaching and life. The effect on those who practice it is an ever-increasing awareness of God’s action and presence in the course of ordinary life.
The Rev. Tom Ward is the retired university chaplain at the University of the South and now spends his days focusing on the contemplative dimension of the gospel, teaching Centering Prayer, and leading retreats.
