“Be still and know that I am God.”

                                                                    —  [Ps. 46:10]

Contemplative Network® is a contemplative, interdenominational Christian, all-volunteer, nonprofit organization, which collaborates with other Faith contemplative traditions.  We share Centering Prayer, its methodology and conceptual background, plus other related prayer.  We offer follow-up Resource Meetings with Thomas Keating DVD’s, plus Prayer Groups, Retreats, and Resources.  We gratefully accept donations for Centering Prayer outreach, interfaith dialogue, and scientific research we support on neurological and behavioral correlates of Centering Prayer.


Centering Prayer 1 Choose a sacred word as the symbol of your intention to consent to God’s presence and action within. 2 Sitting comfortably and with eyes closed, settle briefly and silently introduce the sacred word. 3 When engaged with thoughts, return ever-so-gently to the sacred word. 4 At the end of the prayer period, remain in silence with eyes closed for a couple of minutes.Details Here »

Most faiths have contemplative traditions;  Contemplative Network looks to a future of interfaith contemplative prayer practice that recognizes the spiritual importance of silence in healing, and is actively pursuing interfaith dialogue at the board level, in attendance at conferences, and in pursuit of research.  For updates on interfaith dialogue, see Upcoming Events, Contemplative Research, and Board Governance.
