Welcoming Prayer Introductory Workshop
November 16, 2019 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Introduction to the Welcoming Prayer Workshop
The Church of the Blessed Sacrament
152 W. 71st St., Manhattan, NY 10023
9:30 am – 3:30 pm
9:00 am – Registration
Led by Therese Saulnier of Contemplative Outreach
The Welcoming Prayer is a method of consenting to God’s presence and action in our physical and emotional reactions to events and situations in daily life. The purpose of the Welcoming Prayer is to deepen our relationship with God through consenting in the ordinary activities of our day — “consent-on-the-go.”
The Welcoming Prayer helps to dismantle the emotional programs of the false-self system and to heal the wounds of a lifetime by addressing them where they are stored — in the body. It contributes to the process of transformation in Christ initiated in Centering Prayer.
Therese Saulnier has been praying the Welcoming Prayer for over 25 years. She learned the prayer from Mary Mrozowski, the author of the Welcoming Prayer. Therese has been praying Centering Prayer for over thirty years and teaching Centering Prayer and other contemplative prayer practices for over twenty-five years. She is employed as a web developer for a Fortune 500 company. Therese brings a practical perspective into how to live a contemplative life in the 21st century.
Please bring a bag lunch.
Please RSVP in advance as space is limited. Registration begins at 9 am so that we can begin promptly at 9:30. There is no registration fee. A suggested donation of $20 helps Contemplative Outreach sponsor future contemplative events and training.
