David Frenette: Sacred Attention and Contemplative Living

March 15th, 7:30 pm

We live in a world of complexity, fragmentation, noise, and haste. The sheer quantity of tasks, appointments, and commitments can be overwhelming. How can we experience God in the midst of the busyness, responsibilities, and activities of our daily lives? By practice. By living more in the present moment. By practicing the presence of God in the present moment. This evening presentation will help you with your practice of sacred attention.
David Frenette has taught Centering Prayer under Fr. Thomas Keating’s guidance since 1984, including as a trainer for long-term practitioners in Contemplative Outreach. He cofounded and co-led a Centering Prayer retreat community for ten years. He now teaches and gives spiritual direction at the Center for Contemplative Living in Denver, is an Adjunct Faculty in the Religious Studies Department at Naropa University, and has an M.A. in Counseling Psychology.March 15th, 7pm
