Video: "Guided Session of Centering Prayer"


Recommended Posts

Contemplative prayer is something I strongly value. In case someone here is not familiar with it, I thought I'd share a video. 

Are there others out there interested in the contemplative tradition?

I am interested in this. I've been using mindfulness and breathing to help calm some of the nursing home residents I work with and they seem to love it. Even in their very senior years, they are interested in trying something new and request it again. I find it can take me away from my current status or situation and give me peace.

This seems to me to be very similar to non-religious meditation.  I utilize an app called 1GiantMind which follows the same process, but focuses on using the word 'ahum' repetitively, and encourages you to not force your thoughts but just gently come back to the word 'ahum' when you mind drifts and starts thinking.  I really find it stress-reducing and beneficial.
