12/3: Centering Prayer, by Barbara Prendergast (Raynor Memorial Libraries, Beaumier A, 4- 5 pm)
Centering Prayer is the opening of mind and heart - our whole being -- to God, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond thoughts, words, and emotions. Father Thomas Keating, founder of Contemplative Outreach, adapted the prayer methods of earlier times to give us Centering Prayer, a method of prayer that is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer but to add depth of meaning to all prayer, facilitating a movement into a receptive prayer of resting in God. In this talk, Barbara will introduce us to Centering Prayer and its technique.
Barbara B. Prendergast received a master’s degree in Theology from Marquette University and a certificate in Spiritual Direction from Creighton University. She is a trained presenter for Centering Prayer and serves on the leadership team for Contemplative Outreach of Southeastern Wisconsin.
