Silence is God’s first language.” John of the Cross 16th Century Mystic

If you are beginning the practice of Centering Prayer you may not know what materials are beneficial and helpful in getting you started.  Similarly, you may have an established practice of Centering Prayer and may need further material and resources to help you deepen the practice.

The spiritual direction of those practicing Centering Prayer, the particular method that prepares one for contemplative prayer and being companioned on your journey is also very important.  We hope the information we provide here in these pages will help, support and enable you to find what it is you need for your spiritual growth in Centering Prayer and to sustain you on your spiritual journey.

“Beginners on the spiritual journey need concrete instruction as regards the regular practice of Centering Prayer, a simple rule of life and some suggested reading.  For those who are established in a prayer practice, there is need for Lectio Divina and spiritual reading as well as practice for daily life.  For those who are more advanced on the spiritual journey, the support of friendship and understanding is the greatest gift one can offer.” Fr. Thomas Keating
