"The spiritual journey is not a career or a success story.  It is a series of humiliations of the false self that become more and more profound...What prevents us from being more available to God is gradually evacuated..."

The Welcoming Prayer Practice

The Welcoming Prayer is a method of consenting to God’s presence and action in our physical and emotional reactions to events and situations in daily life. The purpose of the Welcoming Prayer is to deepen our relationship with God through consenting in the ordinary activities of our day — “consent-on-the-go.” The Welcoming Prayer helps to dismantle acquired emotional programs and to heal the wounds of a lifetime by addressing them where they are stored — in the body.
