Central to many religious traditions is developing awareness of how thoughts and emotions dominate much of our focus of attention. To “Let go and let God” requires some type of practice focused on surrendering our well-developed and overprotective egos or false self.
The Welcoming Prayer is a simple and practical way to let go of the afflictive emotions that arise regularly. This is a discipline for daily life which originated through Centering Prayer as a supplemental practice.
Terry Shaughnessy (Facilitator) first learned the Welcoming Prayer in 1992 from Mary Mrozowski, the creator and spiritual mother of the practice. This simple, yet profound spiritual tool has enriched his Centering Prayer practice and helped provide freedom from much unnecessary suffering in his life.
