What is Centered Prayer?

We had a great conversation with Rich Lewis who explained this.

Rich wrote a book called Sitting with God.  He says the book focuses on centering prayer and how it transformed him.

Having never heard of Centering Prayer, we asked if Rich could describe this to us.  He speaks to this, and it is interesting how he states that before a "sit" you have a sacred word.  And this brings you back to focus in the present moment to let go of all the other "clatter" in your life.

Rich shares about vulnerability, of crying through a sit, or letting go.  In a world where crying is still not fully acceptable, primarily in men, it was a nice sharing moment.

Rich said his main clients are brand new to Centered Prayer and need someone to keep them accountable. and then someone who has already been doing something, but wants to connect further, and then the third is Pastors and Ministers.  To this, we did discuss the heavy weight Pastors and Ministers hold and about suffering from "burnout".

You can find Rich's book at www.SilenceTeaches.com.
