09:30 AM - 04:00 PM


"O living flame of love that tenderly wounds my soul in its deepest center!”

– John of the Cross

Contemplative Outreach Chicago is sponsoring the Living Flame 2 program. This extraordinary program includes seven full-day offerings of in-depth spiritual study presented over a four-month period by commissioned presenters from the various service teams within Contemplative Outreach Ltd.

Designed to teach the vital conceptual background needed to support a faithful practice of Centering Prayer, the program also offers encouragement and support in a small community setting, heightens the awareness of the transformation process, helps discern when psychological skills can be helpful tools, and provides the opportunity to give and receive spiritual companionship.

 All Living Flame workshops will take place on Saturdays, online via Zoom.
