The Welcoming Prayer – An Introduction
(All Event Times Listed are Central Standard Time)
Sewanee, TN 37375
The Welcoming Prayer is a method of consenting to God’s presence and action in our physical and emotional reactions to events and situations in daily life. The purpose of the Welcoming Prayer is to deepen our relationship with God through consenting in the ordinary activities of our day. It helps to dismantle the emotional programs of the false-self system and to heal the wounds of a lifetime by addressing them where they are stored — in the body. This practice contributes to the process of transformation in Christ initiated in Centering Prayer.
In this introductory workshop, led by the Rev. Tom Ward, participants will learn the method and principles of this prayer practice and have the opportunity to experience this ancient method in a quiet, reflective atmosphere.
This event takes place via Zoom; to participate, you must have internet access and a computer or tablet with an internet connection.
Partial scholarships are available for Centering Prayer events; please email Kylene McDonald for more information.
You will receive additional information, including the Zoom link, at least 48 hours before the beginning of the event.
