Often times, our prayer lives can become dry and it feels like what we know about God doesn't seem to match our experience of God through prayer.

Contemplative prayer is a practice that allows one to quiet their mind in order to discover what God has to say. 

 

In this course, we will take a look at Contemplative Prayer - What is it? Is it safe? And how do you practice it? We will discuss and have the opportunity to practice five types of Contemplative Prayer.

What People are Saying...

I am so grateful for Katie's class. It has been life-changing for me. From the beginning life-giving to see so much more of me, and it brought a deeper "knowing" of Father God's heart for me. It is truly opportunity discussions together with Katie and the other women took it to a deeper level--I found it so helpful to have a place to process what I was experiencing. I had an online, I wanted to pour everything into this experience because I wanted it to be more than just another class to take, but a new way of living in the freedom Jesus came to give. ~ Becky

Thank you for providing a safe platform for conversation and a chance to gain insight into what is going on inside of ourselves and others. A real eye opener! ~ Karol

The Experiencing God course offers one the opportunity to open their heart and mind to truly see God's deep love for them. It is a time of transformation and healing for the one taking the course if that is what they truly desire. ~ AK

Katie Skurja is gifted in her knowledge, experience and presentation of the Enneagram. It's beautiful to see how understanding this tool helps secure our identify in Christ, and to be transformed in His likeness. ~ Christine

Each week you made me feel comfortable. I would recommend others who are not taking the time to either spend with God or to get away from the day to day grind to take the Creating a Rhythm of Life class and begin to find their rhythm for life. ~ Dan

I've studied the Enneagram for years, but this class is unlike anything I have experienced before. The focus on wholeness and our active participation in integration was unique and life-giving. I appreciate Katie's ability to ask good questions that take me deeper and challenge me to think more broadly. I loved this class! ~ Michelle

I entered 'Christ in Me Through the Enneagram' with a minimal knowledge of the Enneagram, but not clear on what my type is and what it meant. In a few short weeks, I learned the nine types, identified my own type, had practical spiritual application, made new friends online, received support, and was gently introduced into what my lowest type was and how to integrate all of the types into my life.~ Jan
