Centering Prayer Groups
After the Introduction to Centering Prayer, participants usually wish to continue to meet weekly. We recommend the formation of a Centering Prayer Group
to support one's growth in this prayer practice. A Centering Prayer Group typically meets weekly. A typical meeting consists of a 20 minute period of
Centering Prayer; ongoing education in the conceptual background to Centering Prayer and the Christian contemplative heritage; and  an
experience-based sharing on the prayer experience and its effects in daily life. Some groups may also practice Lectio Divina.   A Centering Prayer Group
generally remains open to new members as participants often bring interested friends. If the Group has a trained Facilitator, the newcomers can be
taught the Method of Centering Prayer, one-on-one, encouraging the newcomer to attend the next full Introduction to Centering Prayer.
