The Examen Prayer

Have you ever wondered if there is more to a relationship with God than what you know about God? We often hear that God is a God of love, but sometimes it just doesn't feel like it. And what is prayer except for a lot of words? 

If these questions sound familiar to you, join Kathi Gatlin, a spiritual director, to learn how to listen deeply through contemplative prayer practices. She will share how this kind of listening prayer matches how we are invited into a relationship with God.

The Examen Prayer is a beautiful practice to use in discerning a way forward or holding our internal movements with curiosity. The gift of listening in this way, offers a compassionate space to listen deeply to our internal movements without judgment. 

Kathi hosts two different contemplative prayer practices each month. You may come to one or all. Groups will be limited to 8 participants.

Kathi Gatlin founded Boldly Loved and co-founded the Companioning Center to bring together her two greatest passions: spiritual formation and teaching. In this, she utilizes her DMin. in Leadership and Spiritual Formation from Portland Seminary and her M.Ed. earned through George Fox University.

Her greatest joy is walking alongside others, individually and in groups, in their own spiritual journey, sharing ways of understanding God anew through contemplative prayer and teaching, and to see them grow in the depth of their own understanding of who God is and who they are in relationship with God.
