Silence is God’s first language;
everything else is a poor translation.
In order to hear this language
we must learn to be still and rest in God.
Thomas Keating


Centering Prayer is a receptive method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer: prayer in which we rest gently, silently and openly in God’s presence within us.
During the day there will be opportunities to learn about the origin of centering prayer, its foundation and method,
as well as periods in which to practice it  together.

Ruth Flockhart and Teresia Hasanova, having  been practising  Centering Prayer for many years themselves, received training in teaching this method  from  Contemplative Outreach London in 2016.

Teresia initiated and leads centering prayer groups in Prague and elsewhere in Czechia
Ruth is an Anglican priest and the Co-Ordinator of the Coach House Retreat centre.
