Series & On-Going Programs

Philippa Currey and Linda Snow, CSJ Contemplative Outreach Co-Coordinators for San Fernando Valley

Centering Prayer is a silent meditation practice intended to deepen one's relationship with God. The group sessions include time for communal Centering Prayer, a contemplative walk, input from a Spiritual Journey DVD or book by Fr. Thomas Keating, and group sharing. If you are new to the practice we highly recommend the Introduction to Centering Prayer Workshop.
Contact Person: Linda Snow, CSJ, or
Pat Nelson, CSJ 818-784-4515 ext. 3870.
