|TUE||6:15 PM – 7:15 PM||Centering Prayer
Centering Prayer is a simple form of sitting meditation which has its roots in the bedrock of Christian contemplative tradition from the fourteenth century. The essence of Centering Prayer consists of learning to withdraw attention from our thoughts in order to rest in a gentle, open attentiveness to God. The release of a thought is accomplished with the help of a sacred word which helps return you to open awareness. Centering Prayer is done not with your attention but with your intention to maintain an openness to God.
Centering Prayer is led by Sharri Fisher. Sharri is a member of Spiritual Directors International and holds a certificate from Hesychia School of Spiritual Direction in Tuscon, Arizona.
|THU||6:00 PM – 6:30 PM||Bat Kol
Bat Kol gatherings are contemplative in nature, loosely following the framework of the ancient prayer practice of Lectio Devina. Bat kol is the name given in Jewish Tradition to the phenomenon of the Divine Voice. Translated into English, bat kol literally means “the daughter of a sound.” Connotatively, we understand bat kol to be the echo of the Divine voice spoken intimately to and heard individually within our receptive hearts. In these weekly gatherings, we employ a variety of contemplative practices intended to enhance our hearing of the Bat Kol. Dress is casual. All are welcome. Refer to the calendar for current topic of reflection.
