The Welcoming Prayer:

Adding a second engine to Your

Centering Prayer Practice

August 12, 2023

Presented by Logan Jones

An online contemplative mini-retreat.

Explore the Welcoming Prayer as a practice and method of consenting to the Divine Indwelling’s presence and action in our physical and emotional reactions to events and situations in daily life.

If Centering Prayer (or another prayer or meditative practice) is practiced for 40 to sixty minutes daily, this is for the other 23 hours!

In this mini-retreat we'll explore the ways the Welcoming Prayer can be used in daily life with a special emphasis on how it helps us let go of and dismantle the false self and its over-identification with the culture and social values that we grew up in. This prayer practice helps us let go of our egocentric desires for ever more symbols of




We'll explore this in the context of the human condition and will include time for both Centering and Welcoming Prayer during our session.

We hope you join us!

Logan was raised as a Baptist in Catholic Salzburg, Austria, and Christianity still forms the core of his faith.

He has also learned an enormous amount by exploring the practices of other traditions, in particular the meditations and teachings of engaged or Thiền Buddhism, which is a version of Zen Buddhism (Thich Nhat Hanh, father of the mindfulness movement), the inner work teachings and practices of Fourth Way Spirituality which include Enneagram* work (G.I. Gurdjieff, P.D. Ouspensky) and the wisdom tradition/contemplative dimension of Christianity (particularly the work of William Menniger, Thomas Keating, Cynthia Bourgealt, and Richard Rohr).

He lives in Richmond, Virginia with his wife Silke and their cat Zoëy where he tries to take a walk and practice Centering & Welcoming Prayer every day, which he feels has a deep connection with his contemplative practice and innerwork.
