Hello, and welcome to Methods: an exploration in guided prayer and meditation. This episode is part of our Being-With series, a subtle nod to the philosopher Martin Heidegger and his term referencing the Mitsein aspect of being. That the very nature of humanity is to be in relationship to others. We are inauthentic when we fail to recognize how much and in what ways how we think of ourselves and how we habitually behave is influenced by our social surroundings. We are authentic when we pay attention to that influence and decide for ourselves whether to go along with it or not. Today we speak with my friend Rich Lewis, a leader for RCMR (Recovering Christianity's Mystical Roots) and a contemplative workshop leader and writer. In our conversation we get into the nuts and bolts of Centering Prayer, the type of contemplative prayer popularized mainly by Father Thomas Keating.
