Introduction to Centering Prayer with Father Nicholas (15, and 5 minutes of silence)

Here is a quick introductory PODcast for those interested in Christian contemplation. Father Nicholas Amato, a Christian Wellness Guru, takes us through the exercise. Below are two options for 15 minutes or just 5 minutes of silence. Father Nicholas goes over breathing techniques and how to use a short prayer to help you “float like a feather on the breath of God.” We’ve added a little music to help you get use to the silence.


Below, version with 15 minutes of silence. If this is your first time, you might be better off trying the version with only 5 minutes of silence.
