Central to many religious traditions is developing awareness of how thoughts and emotions dominate much of our focus of attention.  To “let go and let God” requires some type of practice focused on surrendering our well-developed and overprotective egos or false self.

The Welcoming Prayer is a simple and practical way to let go of the afflictive emotions that arise regularly. This is a discipline for daily life which originated through Centering Prayer, as a supplemental practice during active times. Join us as we learn through practice this way of being present to reality by being free from the painful narratives that frequently hold us captive.

The Welcoming Prayer more than holds its own as a tool of inner awakening, and used with this deliberate intention, it can take you all the way there.  It is the most important practice I know of to engage the attention of the heart and apply it to the total transformation of consciousness.”
