Remote Workshop Opportunities
Out of Control in the Time of Pandemic
Life feels out of control for many of us right now.
The world’s landscape has changed and we don’t know how the future is going to unfold. Practicing Centering Prayer is one way to help us to better navigate this uncertain time. Join Susan Packard to learn about and practice Centering Prayer in three one-hour sessions this summer. Packard is a co-founder of HGTV who left a career building businesses to build a life around teaching, writing, and 12-Step Recovery. She is a regular Centering Prayer workshop teacher. During each workshop, she will provide instruction about the topic, then lead a silent, 15-minute Centering Prayer meditation, leaving time for questions and answers.
The next meeting will be at 11 am (Eastern)/10 am (Central) on Saturday, July 11; the final meeting will be on Saturday, August 8. Registration is NOT required for this free event (donations are always welcome). To learn more or to get the Zoom link, please click here.
Tuesday Centering Prayer Support Group
Please join us for a Zoom-based Centering Prayer support group on Tuesdays, at 3:30 pm (Central Time). This is an opportunity for new and experienced practitioners to share time together, both in quiet conversation and in silence. We gather online, offer brief introductions/check-ins, listen to a Psalm, and then have a thirty-minute sit. For log-in information and other details, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
