The Psychological Experience of Centering Prayer


Saturday, November 23, 2019

8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

Jim McElroy

The human transformation we undergo in Centering Prayer is complex and multifaceted. We face common questions about how our practice is progressing and our psychological experience of releasing the emotional wounds of a lifetime. This presentation is intended to clarify the psychological process on our journey to transformation.
