Contemplative Life Program Re-Launches in October
Join Center for Spiritual Wisdom this fall
as we re-launch the
Contemplative Life Program (CLP).
Do you have a contemplative prayer or meditation practice, but wish you could go deeper? Do you ever dream about sharing the contemplative path with others to enrich your inner life?
If Yes, we recommend you look into CLP.
Contemplative Life will meet once per month in Brevard, enjoy contemplative silence, and share mutual learnings from the Contemplative Life Program curriculum, published by Contemplative Outreach International. The group will be co-led by CSW Director Rob Field, who led weekly Centering Prayer groups for 15 years, and Mary Marinucci, who leads a Centering Prayer group in Brevard.
Come to our free, no-obligation information meeting on Thursday, Sept. 21 at 5:30 p.m. at Elk Haven Wellness Center in Brevard. Thereafter, monthly group gatherings will take place on the first Wednesdays of each month at Elk Haven (exact time to be determined by the group). Each monthly session will last 2 hours, and the first session will be on Oct. 4. The group's last session will be next May.
The cost for the year will be $300 for the full series, or $45 per person per session. The 40-day CLP practice booklets are available separately, and can be purchased in hard copy format or as less expensive digital downloads HERE.
Titles of the 40-day spiritual practice booklets in Year One are Centering Prayer, Welcoming Prayer, Lectio Divina, Discernment, Forgiveness, Active Prayer, Attention/Intention. Each booklet features carefully-chosen texts, spiritual practice instructions and suggestions, and exquisite photographs and graphics to enrich the reader's daily spiritual practice. More info can be found HERE (note less constly digital option).
These booklets will be the curriculum for our Contemplative Life group. Monthly sessions will include contemplative silence, teachings about various spiritual practices, review of the CLP materials, and facilitated discussions.
Come Thursday, Sept. 21 at 5:30 p.m. to Elk Haven Wellness Center in Brevard to learn more. At that time, we will offer a brief overview of the CLP curriculum, the monthly group, and answer questions.
