Healing our Violence through the Journey of Centering Prayer

Wednesday evenings: April 11 and 18; Centering Prayer (5:45 – 6:15 p.m.) Audio and Discussion (6:15 – 7:00 p.m.)

One 30 minute period of Centering Prayer followed by a portion of an audio tape featuring Fr. Thomas Keating and Fr. Richard Rohr, where they will challenge us to confront our inner and social violence and bring it to healing and transformation in a sacred and ecumenical context. With insights into the awakening of God’s friendship and growing love in Centering Prayer, they encourage us to face the evil around us, as well as our own demons, opening ourselves to the divine therapy which heals our wounds – something of particular relevance in today’s world.
