Welcoming Prayer Practice Sessions (Zoom)

  • by

March 10, 17, 24, 31 | Thursdays 1:00 p.m.-2:00 p.m. CST/CDT

Facilitated by Rev. Dr. Dennie Oades in partnership with Contemplative Outreach
Cost: $20

Welcoming prayer is a complementary practice to centering prayer. It encourages us in the daily practice of “consent on the go,” consenting to God’s presence and action in everyday life situations. Come join us as we engage in a 15-20 minute guided body scan and welcoming prayer practice. A five-minute break will follow, and then we will have a 20-minute centering prayer sit. It is our hope that this month of communal practice will support your Welcoming Prayer practice.

Please register by March 4. Once we have received your registration, we will send you an invoice for the retreat. Please know we have scholarships available; if you would like to make a request, email S. Carol Ann at sophia@mountosb.org. We strongly encourage you to add sophia@mountosb.org to your email contacts to ensure the delivery of emails regarding your retreat. We look forward to welcoming you online.

Rev. Dr. Dennie Oades holds a PhD in clinical psychology and is a retired United Methodist clergywoman. She has been practicing centering prayer for 30 years and is commissioned by Contemplative Outreach to present workshops in centering prayer, centering prayer as an 11th step, and the welcoming prayer. Dennie also holds a certificate in spiritual direction from the Souljourners Program/Sophia Center.
