Contemplative Practices & Prayer
Contemplative practices and prayer is practical, radical, and transformative, igniting the truth of our faith alive in our individual and shared experiences. Contemplative practices also allow us to develop the capacities for deep concentration and to quiet the mind in the midst of the action and distraction that fills everyday life. According to Mayo Clinic, meditation can wipe away the day’s stress, bringing inner peace.
At PRC, contemplative practices and prayer take on many forms including Christian meditation, Spiritual Direction training, yoga, and workshops and events focused on the enneagram, chanting, prayer, soul-tending, and much more.

Spiritual Direction is an ancient practice that crosses denominational backgrounds. It allows someone (often called a directee) to explore their spiritual life with a trained spiritual director, who is present to listen, ask questions, invite silence, and pay attention to invitations from the Holy Spirit.
For many directees, Spiritual Direction is a long-term process with regular conversations. But Spiritual Direction may also address and support short-term needs. Persons may meet a spiritual director for many different reasons, including:
- A safe space for support, transformation and spiritual development for pastors and church leaders
- Discerning your mission, vision and purpose
- Addressing challenges in your spiritual life
- Decision-making regarding a life transition or job change
- Exploring and embracing inner growth and transformation
