Contemplative Outreach of Madison is offering a one-day workshop on the Welcoming Prayer on Saturday November 4 at the Holy Wisdom Monastery in Middleton, Wisconsin.
The Welcoming Prayer is a method of consenting to God’s presence and action in our physical and emotional reactions to events and situations in daily life. The purpose of the Welcoming Prayer is to deepen our relationship with God through consenting in ordinary activities. The Welcoming Prayer helps to dismantle the emotional programs of the false-self system and to heal the wounds of a lifetime by addressing them where they are stored—in the body. It contributes to the process of transformation in Christ initiated in Centering Prayer.
Mary Dwyer, from Bay Harbor, Florida, a longtime presenter of Centering Prayer and the Welcoming Prayer Practices and a member of the Recovering Community, will present the Welcoming Prayer workshop. Mary will also be presenting a weekend retreat focusing on “The Forgiveness Prayer” in Racine, Wisconsin December 10-12 (see below).
