Mystical Hope

A Centring Prayer Group

This group meets at the Gold Coast on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month.  The foundation of our prayer and reflection is based on Thomas Keating's book Open Mind, Open Heart:  The Contemplative Dimension of the Gospel. 

Centring prayer elicits a commitment to the goal of inner transformation.  It suggests a practical method of entering our 'inner room' by deliberately letting go of external concerns symbolised by closing our eyes and conenting to the presence and action of God within.
