Simple Presence – A Contemplative Prayer Experience with the Vision of Contemplative Outreach – via Zoom

January 21, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

In Simple Presence, the divine Presence becomes an invitation for our community to listen deeply to the Spirit’s movement and action within. The event will offer a communal prayer experience dedicated to contemplation of the Vision Statement of Contemplative Outreach: “We embrace transformation in Christ, both in ourselves and in others through the practice of Centering Prayer.”

Each participant enters into inner awareness individually and then opens to the source of the Presence, which is shared by other members of the group. The underlying commonality of the intention held is sacred. Simple Presence is being offered to those who are engaged with Contemplative Outreach on any level or simply have an interest in this community. It will be assumed that participants have a regular Centering Prayer practice and are familiar with Lectio Divina and the Welcoming Prayer.

Alan Krema will lead this workshop and it will include embodied prayer, chant, reflective readings, Centering Prayer, Welcoming Prayer, and wisdom sharing. Come prepared to sit in Simple Presence with the sacred words of the Vision. This prayerful event will be approximately two hours in length and will be presented online as Zoom gathering.
