Resources to support the practice of Centering Prayer in daily life.

Contemplative Outreach of Central Iowa exists for the purpose of supporting our members in their daily practice of Centering Prayer. We are a chapter of Contemplative Outreach Ltd.

Contemplative Outreach is a community of individuals and Centering Prayer groups committed to living the contemplative dimension of the Gospel in everyday life.

There are different kinds of spiritual gifts but the same Spirit;
there are different forms of service but the same Lord;
there are different workings but the same God
who produces all of them in everyone.
I Corinthians 12:4-7

“The root of prayer is interior silence.  We may think of prayer as thoughts or feelings expressed in words.  But this is only one expression.  Deep prayer is the laying aside of thoughts.  It is the opening of mind and heart, body and feelings—our whole being—to God, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond words, thoughts and emotions.”  (OM, 136)
