Centering Prayer is a way to remember to re-orient our lives. Centering prayer consists of two components:
1) Studying the process of Centering, and discussion of our reading for the week.
2) Spending twenty minutes divesting ourselves of ourselves - our thoughts, feelings, and busyness. This whole process is a self-reminder in all of life to be centered in the awareness of the presence of the Holy.
