We hope you will get involved and help plan Contemplative Outreach-Chicago’s future. On Saturday, March 5, we will be meeting for a day of visioning and discernment, an opportunity for all persons attending Centering Prayer groups or interested in learning about Centering Prayer to gather together to assess our needs as a developing contemplative community.
This is your chance to get involved and help plan future growth and direction for Contemplative Outreach in the Chicago and Northwest Indiana region. We are excited about this day and encourage all to attend.
The day will include large and small group processes, led by Susan Komis, a skilled and experienced group process facilitator, who is a leader of Contemplative Outreach at the national level. All participants will have an opportunity to offer input and be a part of planning for our future as a Contemplative Outreach community.
One key decision we will address is the selection of a new Coordinator for Contemplative Outreach-Chicago. Phil Jackson’s five years in this important leadership role are coming to an end, and the March 5 meeting will include a careful process to choose Phil’s successor. It would be very helpful to have a large turnout of Centering Prayer practitioners to participate in making this decision.
Our Day of Discernment will take place Saturday, March 5, 8:30am – 4:00pm at Mary Seat of Wisdom Church in Park Ridge. Lunch will be provided.
RSVP: If you can join us, please e-mail Phil Jackson at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can plan for the right number of participants.
