Contemplative Tradition:

 

Contemplative Prayer is the opening of mind and heart - our whole being - to God, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond thoughts, words and emotions, whom we know by faith is within us, closer than breathing, thinking, feeling and choosing; even closer than consciousness itself.

 

You may have experienced a touch of contemplation while gazing at the stars, walking on the beach or in a forest or when losing oneself in the presence of a loved one. This experience of oneness breaks through your sense of separation and may invite you into a deeper experience of unity with God. The root of contemplative prayer is interior silence.

 

Though we may think of prayer as thoughts or feelings expressed in words, this is only one expression. Contemplative Prayer is a prayer of silence, an experience of God's presence as the ground in which our being is rooted, the Source from whom our life emerges at every moment.

 

For the Church's first sixteen centuries Contemplative Prayer was the goal of Christian spirituality. After the Reformation, this living tradition was virtually lost. Today, with cross-cultural dialogue and historical research, the recovery of the Christian Contemplative Tradition has begun.

 

The method of Centering Prayer, is contributing to this renewal.
