Centering Meditation is a form of prayer in the Christian contemplative tradition that trains the heart, mind, and soul to open to Sacred Presence. Through silence and an inner gesture of letting go, we learn to experience the Sacred Presence beyond words, emotions, and thoughts, and to release our attachment to egoic concerns. The practice cultivates a deep relationship with sacred reality, and opens us to compassion and inner peace.

Join Henri Lock, United Chaplain at the University of Victoria’s Multifaith Services and Miranda Harvey, Administrator at The Contemplative Society, as we explore the teachings of Thomas Keating and Cynthia Bourgeault that shape this practice.
