A Day of Deepening Silence: Centering Prayer and the Human Purpose

  • St Mary - St Catherine of Siena Parish 55 Warren Street Charlestown, MA, 02129 United States (map)

A workshop organized by Contemplative Outreach of Boston  at St. Catherine of Siena Chapel, Charlestown, MA, with LDI's Director of Wisdom Study, Rev. Steven Bonsey.

The practice of Centering Prayer draws its inspiration from an ancient stream of Christian spiritual tradition.  Through the centuries monastic communities, formed by a rule of life, have preserved for us the "spiritual technology" of transformation.  Religious pluralism in our increasingly global communities has made us aware of the mystical stream running through all of the world’s great religious traditions.  The contemplative stream offers practical wisdom regarding the means by which we join in the work of our own and the world’s salvation — that’s, our emergence together into fullness of life.  

In this workshop we will reflect on the instrumental role that Centering Prayer plays, along with other Wisdom practices, in the process of our ongoing conversion and the fulfillment of our human purpose.
