About Centering Prayer Groups


Many Centering Prayer support group meet weekly around the bay area. These groups are a wonderful way to connect with others who have a Centering Prayer practice and to strengthen and clarify our own  Centering Prayer practices.  If you are establishing a Centering Prayer practice, you're welcome to share in this "mini-retreat." Groups typically meet for sixty to ninety-minutes and may include the following:


  • Twenty to thirty minutes of Centering Prayer

  • Readings from Open Mind, Open Heart

  • Video presentations from Fr Thomas Keating

  • Brief period of sharing

  • Closing prayer

  • Each group tends to structure its time according to its members desires.
