The Fruits of Centering Prayer

 

The centering prayer retreat continues with the Brothers practising centering prayer.  Each session lasts twenty minutes, and the idea is that Brothers spend two sessions each day to enter into the silence and solitude of being with the mystery we call God.

During the sessions we discussed the benefits of centering prayer in daily life – how this practice can influence the way we see life, how we react to people and community, and how we create a contemplative lifestyle.

During the day we also introduced a talk by Thomas Keating who presented centering prayer based on the encouragement of Jesus to enter into a secret room and in that room to become aware of the presence of God who will reward us for our commitment to silence.
