Contemplative Practice

Contemplative Practice is an essential part of spiritual well-being.
Here’s how we do it at Common Thread.

On Sundays, a 10-minute guided meditation goes live on our website, YouTube, and our podcast stream. It’s there to be ready for you to start your week.

Each week’s guided meditation focuses on one of our core contemplative practices:

  • mindfulness meditation (centering prayer)
  • self-examination (examen)
  • the welcome prayer (mindfulness in the moment)
  • lovingkindness meditation

Each week’s guided meditation also sets a focus for us to practice together through the week.

And then we chat together. Our online group has a threaded conversation each week. We tell our stories, read one another’s stories, and encourage one another to be steady in our practice.

Join in. It’s a great way to engage your own contemplative practice, and get to know others on the journey.
