CONTEMPLATIVE
NETWORK

Open Hands, Open Heart

Contemplative Network, Inc. is an interfaith, non-profit organization. We welcome everyone without regard to their religious affiliation. To anyone spiritually searching, our door and our hearts are open. We believe God dwells within everyone. We invite you to join our quest to find and know God without words or dogma. Let’s walk together in silence, in community, in love.

Contemplative Network recognizes the impact of Centering Prayer on healing. We sponsor medical research showing its improvement of quality-of-life for several chronic diseases and in lessening the fear of death. We are actively interfaith on our board and through attendance and presentations at: spiritual retreats; scientific and religious conferences; and religious houses of worship.

"Be still and know that I am God."

Psalm 46:10

What is Contemplative Prayer?

Virtually every faith tradition has a lesser-known form of prayer called Contemplative Prayer. It is a Divine gift when we rest in God without thoughts or words. The Abrahamic faiths practice Kabbalah in Judaism, Mysticism in Christianity, and Sufism in Islam. Other faith traditions and spiritual philosophies have their particular practice. We teach interfaith Centering Prayer to open ourselves to God’s gift of Contemplative Prayer. This silent form of prayer is the opening of mind and heart, our whole being, to the Divine Healer beyond thoughts, words, and emotions. We are saying we would rather be with You, God, than with our own thoughts. Through grace, we open our awareness to God whom we know is closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than choosing, closer than consciousness.
