In response to the public health concerns related to Coronavirus Disease (COVID-19), Wisdom Ways will pause all programs through June 30, 2020. This includes Centering Prayer Circle on March 18, April 8 and 22, May 6 and 20, and June 3 and 17.

To foster community among participants, the Wisdom Ways Men’s Spirituality Series holds a twice-monthly contemplative prayer circle.  Each meeting begins with 20 minutes of contemplative prayer practice using the method of Centering Prayer.

Opportunity for group sharing is included, as well as occasional video teachings by Centering Prayer teacher and Trappist monk Thomas Keating.

This ancient practice of Christian meditation is related to the classic tradition of contemplation and is easily accessible.
