The Episcopal priest and author Cynthia Bourgeault states, “I continue to be impressed by Centering Prayer’s fidelity to the heart of the Christian tradition and its ability…to lead its practitioners toward nondual awakening [in the] Christian and Western [tradition].”
As we approach the Lenten season next week, perhaps we could take a closer look at this practice, with an eye to deepening our prayer and trying to be “totally open to God.”
Cynthia’s latest book is entitled: The Heart of Centering Prayer: Nondual Christianity in Theory and Practice, and is well worth the time you spend to read it.
Thomas Keating, a Trappist monk and prime mover in the Contemplative Outreach movement, has also a wonderful introduction to the topic Intimacy with God: An Introduction to Centering Prayer . We hope you might find these helpful as we near the forty days of Lent, back to the One who gives us life and sustains us on our journey.
