Teaching by Cynthia Bourgeault
Available as 2-disc CD set or MP3 download – approx running time 2.5 hrs.
Centering Prayer is a wordless, trusting prayer practice that seeks to open us more deeply to the presence and action of God. As we rest in silence at the centre of our being, our awareness of the Divine grows. Through the regular practice of Centering Prayer, our ability to be present, flexible, and forgiving increases. We become more honest and comfortable in our own being. This CD offers a full introduction to the method of Centering Prayer. Cynthia discusses the basics such as handling thoughts and the logistics of setting up a regular practice. She has been a practitioner of Centering Prayer since 1988 and this practice is core to her teaching
