Centring Down with Compassion

Have you ever wondered what Quakers mean by “Centring Down”? Are you puzzled by how difficult it is to “be still and cool thine own heart and mind”? This course is an exploration of different ways into stillness. You will cultivate your capacity to be present in worship and your daily activities.

Centring Down helps us to be more open to ourselves and our communities with kindness and understanding. Practicing a way into stillness transforms how we show up in the world, because we are truly nourished and resourced by the inner light. This course will of benefit to anyone who is looking to deepen their awareness of the divine in their lives.

In each of the six sessions we will explore a different way to enter stillness and silence, which you can then practice over the week. Each way into stillness is rooted in an Advice and Query, which will act as a guide in each exploration. There will be recorded guidance to support your daily practice and you will be encouraged to journal about your experiences.

The date period given for the course is when you are expected to interact with the online material and discussion forum; you can work on this at any time to suit you.

All times are given as UK time. Make sure to check your own timezone at www.savvytime.com/converter.
