Contemplative Prayer: Teaching

In Pursuit of Silence

“Silence is a whole attitude of being, of relating, and an openness to the mutual knowing and inter-being which is Love.” – Laurence Freeman


For the month of February we will be watching the thoughtful and informative, as well as contemplative and restorative documentary “In Pursuit of Silence”. This film is a meditative exploration of silence and the impact of noise on our lives. As we are in the deep of winter, and perhaps experiencing different forms of silence in these winter months, come out and explore how the grace of silence in our daily lives can actually help us to connect deeper with God and ourselves. Meditation is from 7-7:30 PM; the documentary and discussion is from 7:30-8:15pm. Come for one or both parts of the evening!


Each Tuesday from 7 – 8:15 PM in the Chapel, we learn other ways to enter into contemplative prayer. We believe that contemplative prayer is a gift or a grace from God and that there are many ways to enter into that gift. We focus not only on meditation but also on other contemplative spiritual practices, discussions and readings. Following this time of exploration, there is space and silence to process and share individual experiences.
