Our Practice - Our World

An Afternoon Event with
Catherine Regan and Joy Hayter


Sunday, March 19, 2017
1:00 - 4:30 pm

$20 Registration

"The Christian is one who is connected through the heart to the whole of life, attuned to the deeper intelligence of Nature and called forth irresistibly by the Spirit to creatively express one’s gifts in the evolution of self and world" Ilia Delio


Centering Prayer is sometimes spoken of as the Divine Therapy. We usually reflect on this aspect of our practice in reference to our own spiritual journey. Today we continue our exploration of a wider vision of God’s healing action, and consider how our daily practice may actually be a channel for the Divine Presence to bring healing to our world.


This is an afternoon for those familiar with Centering Prayer – beginners and long-time practitioners. We gather to deepen our consent to God’s presence and action in our world.


(Please note: Instruction in Centering Prayer will not be offered.)


Our time together will include 2 periods of Centering Prayer, a short talk, a video, and conversation.


Catherine Regan, Ph.D, is a spiritual director, clinical psychologist, and the Centering Prayer Coordinator at Mercy Center. She has a special commitment to contemplative practices and the benefits of these practices in our individual and collective lives at this time in our world.

Joy Hayter, Ph.D, is a spiritual director dedicated to fostering Centering Prayer and other contemplative practices that help us become aware of God's ever-present love. As a Professor Emerita of chemistry, she sees in the physical world an expression of that love.
