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.
