A Day with the Cloud of Unknowing:
Celebrating the Heart and Core of Centering Prayer
April 14, 2018
This day is for those who have opened their hearts to God…
…who have come to know something of God’s love for them and yet for whom Centering Prayer is a challenge. Are you concerned about the legitimacy of silence? Have you found Centering Prayer difficult or tedious? Do you feel you aren’t wired for Centering Prayer? Have you been curious but did not know how to enter in? Whatever the barrier, there is hope! You are welcome to reflect together with Jeff whose formal prayer has mostly been Centering Prayer, who has been friends with The Cloud of Unknowing for years, and who has recently come to appreciate the great gift of this book in a fresh way.
Topics will include:
- An Introduction to Centering Prayer
- God and the Cloud of Unknowing
- Everyday Life and the Cloud of Forgetting
- Prayer And The Sharp Dart Of Longing Love
Short times of input will be offered and then time given for personal reflection and response.

LOCATION: Anglican Parish of Christ Church, Calgary, 3602 8 St SW.

Endorsements for Jeff’s writings
From the forward of The Recovery of Love:
This book is a wise book. Its wisdom is not a borrowed wisdom. It is a wisdom born of personal struggles lived in the light of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and shaped by the great mystics of the Church… I pray this book will make him a minister to many who search for ways to transform their passion into a source of unlimited love.
~ Henri Nouwen
About The River Within:
Many who have been raised with traditional religion … mistakenly assume that commitment to God means denying human desires…. Imbach, a pastor and counsellor, explores the ways in which our passion and longings can lead us to embrace God more fully and deepen our spiritual lives.
