Practicing Centering Prayer with the Sacred Breath (Fri. 9 Nov, 2012 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm)

Path of Centering Prayer

To learn more about the workshop, and to register, click here.

While the basic teaching on Centering Prayer generally focuses on the use of the sacred word, it is also possible to practice Centering Prayer with other sacred symbols. In this afternoon retreat-like workshop, you will explore the sacred breath as a way of deepening your own practice of Centering Prayer.

The workshop will be led by David Frenette, author of the newly released The Path of Centering Prayer: Deepening Your Experience of God. Since 1984, he has been teaching Centering Prayer under the guidance of Fr. Thomas Keating, an architect of Centering Prayer.

In the workshop, Frenette will teach how the practice of Centering Prayer with the sacred breath may be particularly appropriate at certain seasons of the spiritual journey. He'll also reveal how this contemplative practice may help you to realize that God, like the breath, is always within you.

The workshop, appropriate for both experienced practitioners and beginners, will include:

• new teachings on how to practice Centering Prayer with the sacred breath
• discussion of how contemplative attitudes may be brought into all aspects of life
• extended practice of Centering Prayer.

LOVE FREE OR DIE is about a man whose two defining passions are in direct conflict: his love for God and for his husband Mark. Gene Robinson is the first openly gay, partnered man or woman to become a bishop in the historic traditions of Christendom. In 2003, his consecration as bishop, to which he wore a bullet-proof vest, caused an international stir, and he has lived with death threats every day since.


This documentary follows Bp. Robinson from small-town churches in the New Hampshire North Country to Washington’s Lincoln Memorial to London’s Lambeth Palace, as he calls for all to stand for equality – inspiring bishops, priests and ordinary folk to change history. 

Bp. Robinson is a 1973 graduate of General Seminary.
