Join us for a one day workshop led by The Rev Tom Ward exploring the “Grace in Aging” and its relation to the Centering Prayer practice. Lunch is included.

In her book The Grace in Aging  psychotherapist and Buddhist practitioner Kathleen Dowling Singh recommends “taking the one seat” as a practice to enable us to age gracefully, and she sees Centering Prayer as one good way to take that seat.  In this workshop we will consider different aspects of the aging process as Singh describes them through presentations, small group discussions, and the practice of Centering Prayer.

Tom is a  retired university chaplain at the University of the South and now spends his days focusing on the contemplative dimension of the gospel, teaching Centering Prayer, and leading retreats.
