Discover a new path to becoming more aware of God and self
At The Center for Christian Spirituality, we know many struggle to experience a deepening awareness of God that truly makes a difference in every part of your life. You may sense an uneasiness with your current ways of worship, prayer, and thinking about God. They don’t seem to work anymore and you’re not sure where to turn for help. This can leave you feeling like you’re missing something or even like there is something wrong with you.
Here at The Center, we know what it feels like when what you’ve been doing no longer works and you find yourself yearning for more. And it’s OK. It’s actually a part of the spiritual journey, but one that you may not have been taught yet or given the tools to walk through before.
For over 20 years, The Center has helped people like you access ancient and relevant teachings and tools that help you deepen your awareness of God, self, others, and creation.
Here is how you can take the next step:
- First, try Contemplative Worship with us on Sunday mornings where we craft the time and space for you to be still and quiet, gently guiding you to not just think about God, but become more receptive to the Beloved’s abiding, transforming presence.
- Second, share in the experience of a contemplative practice with others in our community at one of our regular gatherings, such as a Centering Prayer, a meditative walk, or simply sharing with another what you experienced in Contemplative Worship.
- Third, deepen your awareness of God by engaging in one of our courses, classes, or groups where we disclose more of the practical teachings and tools for the part of the spiritual journey you are on.
You don’t have to feel disillusioned and alone in your spiritual journey. You can live a more present and compassionate life with a deepening awareness of Divine Love within and around you, transforming who you are with God, self, others, and the creation.
