Collective Contemplative Pauses

In the time together...

  • We will all join the time in silence entering a few minutes before if possible as I will begin promptly at the designated time. 

  • Everyone will enter in muted and can stay that way unless speaking (you may be invited to share your name, where you live, and possibly a prompted ‘word’) 

  • There will be a reading, chant, and/or body prayer.

  • We will enter into the practice of Centering Prayer or any other type of silent meditation of your choice for 20 minutes on behalf of our planet.

  • Here are is a summary of the practice of Centering Prayer: Begin by finding a comfortable and upright position that you can remain relatively still in for the duration of the prayer period. Choose a sacred word such as love, heart, presence, release. During the prayer time you simply allow the thoughts, emotions, sensations, and images that occupy your attention to come into your awareness and rather than engage them with your attention, return to your sacred word. This is not a mantra because you are not repeating, pondering, or meditating on the word. It is simply the vehicle which allows you to let go of that which tries to occupy your attention.

  • Feel free to join for any part of it even if you come late or need to leave early. All are welcome as it works for your life.
