Contemplative Outreach Chicago will offer “An Introduction to Centering Prayer” from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 5 at First Congregational United Church of Christ in DeKalb.

This workshop is a chance to learn about silent, contemplative prayer and to share this prayer in an ecumenical setting. The workshop has a suggested fee of $25, with scholarships available.

The Introduction will be followed by six weekly sessions (open to anyone), tentatively scheduled for Wednesdays at 5 p.m. These sessions will include silent prayer and watching a series of short videos about centering prayer by Thomas Keating.
