the Presence

of God

God breathes us in that we may rest in fruition

and God breathes us out that

we may love

and do good works.

John Ruusbroec


Contemplative practice helps us to realize that God,

like our breath, is always within us. Centering Prayer is

our foundational practice.

On that foundation we can

build more skillful practices that deepen contemplation even further.

Using the breath as our sacred symbol in Centering Prayer

helps us to learn how to relate more fully to

God’s indwelling presence and action.

Practicing with the sacred breath

can be especially helpful at certain times

on the spiritual journey, such as when

we are going through a period of emotional purification

(also known as the unloading of the unconscious).

St. Mary’s Sewanee:
