Centering Prayer: Deconstruct Your Faith

Are you deconstructing your faith?

You have many, many questions.

You don’t know how to pray anymore.

You are not sure what words to say to God.

You do not know what you believe anymore.

Have you considered Centering Prayer?

Centering Prayer is silent prayer.

It is wordless prayer.

You sit in silence with God.

You don’t need to worry about what you think or what you will say.

You sit with God and let God love you.

No action is needed by you.

You let go of all your doubts, questions, thoughts and emotions and sit with God.

There is no pressure.

Your job is to simply sit in the rest of God.

And see what happens.

Centering Prayer by Cynthia Bourgeault: Centering Prayer is a simple, no-frills form of meditation in the Christian tradition. Since it was first developed by Christian contemplative monks in the 1970s, it has allowed tens of thousands of practitioners worldwide to “return home,” developing an authentically Christian meditation practice which not only delivers the healing and quieting of the mind typical of all meditation paths, but also reconnects directly to Christianity’s hidden treasury of mystical and transformational wisdom.

The Gospel of Thomas by Cynthia Bourgeault: This e-course, “The Gospel of Thomas with Cynthia Bourgeault,” is a complete “Thomas starter kit”: everything you need to know to get you up and running with this remarkable text, plus a generous sampling of its most important sayings, arranged thematically so that they speak to issues that contemporary spiritual seekers are actually dealing with.
