Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening

Practitioners of Centering Prayer are known for the great enthusiasm they bring to the practice of this ancient discipline. Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening is a complete guidebook for all who wish to know the practice of Centering Prayer. Cynthia Bourgeault goes further than offering an introduction, however. She examines how the practice is related to the classic tradition of Christian contemplation, looks at the distinct nuances of its method, and explores its revolutionary potential to transform Christian life. The book encourages dialogue between Centering Prayer enthusiasts and those classic institutions of Christian nurture—churches, seminaries, and schools of theology—that have yet to accept real ownership of the practice and its potential.

Do not attempt this, it is a Demonic Trap. Centering Prayer is supposed to lead you to Contemplative Prayer. When my prayer became Mystical, I thought that I was in Contemplative Prayer. I received locutions, etc.. Nine months after this I was possessed/oppressed by Satan. Satan used this "Centering Prayer", and my desire to learn to pray for the first time in my life and "Be Still" with the Lord to deceive me. Then both the Catholic Church and Anglican Church have nearly NO ministry of Exorcism or Deliverance. I have been in Deliverance Ministry with ministers of the Protestant Denominations who know the truth of this for over six months. Check it out, do a search on Deliverance Ministry and Centering prayer. Paul says in the Bible to not be ignorant of Satan's devices, but this is not taught in the church today. Any Eastern form of meditation is an abomination to the Lord, and a demonic trap. Do your research, even the Pope warned of Centering Prayer when he was still a Cardinal. I didn't heed the warnings. I can't warn you enough, I have been to Hell for believing I was safe in this prayer form. Check your Bible, there is no "Centering Prayer" there. Say your Our Father and read the Lord's word like Jesus taught you to do. Don't risk your life.
