Welcome to Contemplative Outreach of New Mexico. Our primary purpose is to teach the method of centering prayer and to offer practices that bring its fruits into daily life.
We help individuals and groups establish a centering prayer practice by offering centering prayer workshops, prayer days and retreats and formation programs. Our programs are designed to present the richness of the Christian contemplative heritage in an updated and accessible format.
Centering Prayer is drawn from ancient prayer practices of the Christian Contemplative heritage, notably the Fathers and Mothers of the Desert, the monastic practice of Lectio Divina, The Cloud of Unknowing, John of the Cross, and Terese of Avila. It was distilled into a simple method of prayer in the 1970's by three Trappist monks, Thomas Keating, Basil Pennington and William Meninger.
