Healing Our Violence Through the Journey of Centering Prayer
Two internationally known spiritual guides explore integrating our inner and outer journeys. They challenge us to confront our inner and social violence and bring it to healing and transformation in a sacred and ecumenical context. In a spiritually stimulating weekend, Rohr and Keating each gave insights on awakening to God's friendship, coming to know God and ourselves, growing in love through Centering Prayer, facing evil around us and our demons within us as well as opening our deep selves to divine therapy, which heals our wounds. They invite us to become who we already are. These conferences will appeal to those beginning and those more seasoned in centering prayer. The deep wisdom of two spiritual masters is a sacred and transforming gift plunging us into the ocean of divinity that surrounds us.
