Contemplative Prayer Class

  • Alongsiders Church 2830 Northeast Flanders Street Portland, OR, 97232 United States (map)

You are invited to participate in group contemplative prayer on 4 evenings this fall.  These hour long sessions will offer a chance to explore the following contemplative practices: breathe prayer, lectio divina, the daily examen, the welcoming prayer, a loving kindness meditation, centering prayer and yoga.  No prior experience with these prayer practices is necessary.  Incorporated into the prayer time will be simple instruction led by Mindy Durias, who has been facilitating group contemplative prayer for 6 years.  Come to rest in God and connect in sacred space with others in the Pearl Church family.  

Please feel free to join for as many or as few classes as you are able to attend! While the weeks will build on each other, they will still be open for anyone to jump in and out as your schedule allows.

We will meet from 7:30pm-8:30pm at Alongsiders Church in their fireside room.  Enter through the double doors on Flanders street, west of the main entrance.  For more information contact Mindy Durias at (503) 251-5957 or via email at
