*Amor Meus Spirituality Center, 1101 N. E. Water Street, Victoria, TX 77901 will host a workshop on Centering Prayer on Saturday, April 23, 2022 from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm.  It will be facilitated by Jeannette Easley from Ruah Spirituality Center, Houston, Texas. 
Centering Prayer is based on a Christian contemplative practice first described in The Cloud of Unknowing, written in the latter half of the 14th Century. It is a centuries-old prayer method calling one to surrender to God’s influence in our lives and therefore, deepening our relationship with God.  It consists of simply sitting in silence with God - beyond thoughts, words, and emotions - and opening our mind, heart and whole being to the Ultimate Mystery. It opens us to God's infinite love and power to heal.  It also opens the door to other related prayer practices around forgiveness, and dealing with painful situations and emotions. 
In the workshop, you will experience this prayer style in a guided setting, be able to ask questions and share your experiences of it with the presenter and the other participants.
