Directory of Central Florida Centering Prayer Groups
Centering Prayer groups meet regularly at various locations throughout Florida. After the Introduction to Centering Prayer Workshop, participants are encouraged to continue to meet weekly. Centering Prayer groups support growth in this prayer practice. A typical weekly meeting consists of the Centering Prayer experience, group education activities and sharing. Our groups are composed of people from diverse backgrounds and denominations who come together seeking God.
After the virus pandemic, some prayer groups are still meeting by Zoom. Here is the link to the national site offering Zoom prayer groups each day.
