Transforming the Heart - an introduction to Centering Prayer 

Saturday 16 September 2017, 10am to 4pm

St Augustine’s Church Hall, Norwich NR3 3BY 
£30 (please ask if you need a concession)

In this one-day workshop we will be exploring a method of silent Christian meditation known as Centering Prayer. Developed in the 1970s by a group of Cistercian monks in the United States, Centering Prayer is now practiced by thousands of individuals and groups around the world.

As we very gently let go of thoughts during the prayer time with the help of a sacred word, we manifest our intention to be whole-heartedly present to the Divine at the centre of our being and all around us. The patient practice of this inward gesture of letting go facilitates a process of self-emptying and gradually orientates us to a new way of being and perceiving.

All welcome, whether you're new to meditation practice or looking for a fresh approach; an old hand at Centering Prayer and would welcome a refresher session; or if you're in an addiction recovery process and looking for an 11th step practice. Come and join us as we share the Centering Prayer teachings and enjoy an experience of contemplative community.

The programme for the day will be spacious and will include talks, discussion and opportunities for group practice. It will be presented by Liz Day and Debbie House, in association with Norwich Christian Meditation Centre and Contemplative Outreach.

Liz is co-founder of the Norwich Contemplative Forum and Contemplative Outreach East and Southeast England. She has been practising Centering Prayer for 14 years and has worked with and studied with national and international teachers of Centering Prayer.

After discovering Centering Prayer in 2008 on her ‘second time around’ encounter with Christianity, Debbie is now a presenter-in-training with Contemplative Outreach. Both Liz and Debbie have facilitated Centering Prayer groups, attended retreats and taken part in Cynthia Bourgeault's Wisdom Schools.

The fee for the workshop is £30, but don't let this be a block to you attending - please get in touch with us if you need a reduced rate.
