We embrace the process of transformation in Christ, both in ourselves and in others, through the practice of Centering Prayer.
Contemplative Outreach of Lexington, Kentucky is a local chapter of Contemplative Outreach, Ltd.
The larger organization, Contemplative Outreach, Ltd is a spiritual network of individuals and small faith communities founded in 1984 under the spiritual guidance of Fr. Thomas Keating. Fr. Keating (1923-2018) was one of the principal architects and teachers of the Christian contemplative prayer movement and, in many ways, Contemplative Outreach is a manifestation of his longtime desire to contribute to the recovery of the contemplative dimension of Christianity.
Contemplative Outreach, Ltd, is committed to living the contemplative dimension of the Gospel. The common desire for Divine transformation, primarily expressed through a commitment to a daily Centering Prayer practice, unites our international, interdenominational community
