Does anyone practice [COLOR="RoyalBlue"]Christian Meditation[/COLOR]?  It's essentially the same type of practice as Centering Prayer.  The principal difference is in the emphasis that the two approaches place on the mantra or sacred word/phrase.

I attended a day-long introductory workshop a few years ago (which included three 20-minute periods of meditation throughout the day), just to see what it was like and what the practice involved.  I liked it, even though I've decided to stick with Centering Prayer.

Merope,
Would you say that the Christian Meditation movement does not use the sacred word/phrase?  What can you tell me more of about the differences?

I used to go to a retreat centre near Builth Wells, in mid-Wales, to a group that practiced John Main's meditation.
It was something I always looked forward to.
Now I live too far away to get there easily - but it would be nice to get back into it again.
