This course teaches the meditation method of Centering Prayer, as a way of opening to the living Presence of God alive and well within us.

Closer Than Breath is a 6-week self-paced, video-based meditation course rooted in the Christian Contemplative Tradition. Upon completion you will receive 2.5 CEU’s or 25 CEC hours.


Rooted in the teachings of the Christian contemplatives, Centering Prayer acknowledges that it is in God “in whom we live and move and have our being,” and that “the Kingdom of God is within you.”


The course is designed to give you both the theory and practice of Centering Prayer, helping you open to God daily through silent prayer and meditation.
  • The structure is simple:  Weekly lessons offer bite-sized videos to watch at your own pace along with some reflection questions to engage.
  • There are optional group Zoom meditation meetings for those with the time and desire to connect with other contemplatives.


Hope to see you on the inside!
