Centering Prayer Introductory Program
The Center at St. Andrew, Seattle | June 24, 8:30am-2:00pm | $75, Scholarships Available
Centering Prayer gives you a way to say “yes” to God’s presence and action in your life. It is a method of silent prayer that leads to contemplation and a deeper relationship with God. This program is valuable for those new to centering prayer and those who seek to deepen their existing practice. Even if you have at one time attended a Centering Prayer introductory workshop or are in a centering prayer group, this program can let you hear and see anew. All sessions will take place at St. Andrew, Seattle and will be presented by long-time Centering Prayer practitioners who have been trained and commissioned by Contemplative Outreach.
AWAKE: A Dream from Standing Rock
St. Andrew, Seattle | June 26, 7:00pm
Join St. Andrew, Seattle for a screening of the documentary AWAKE: A Dream from Standing Rock. AWAKE follows the dramatic rise of the historic #NODAPL native-led peaceful resistance at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation near Cannon Ball, North Dakota, which captured the world’s attention as one of the biggest stories of 2016. The documentary features emotional first-person accounts as well as gripping footage of militarized local police and private security teams confronting water protectors and journalists. The film also takes us behind the front lines to reveal the intimate day-to-day life of the camp community, as indigenous and non-indigenous protectors gather for peaceful prayer and song, and engage in daily tasks like clearing snow, raising tipis, distributing clothing donations, or building sleeping barracks for the many veterans who arrived to join the water protectors.
