Our Mission


Our local community supports the work and mission of Contemplative Outreach Ltd.

Founded by Father Thomas Keating and others over 30 years ago in response to Vatican II, Contemplative Outreach Ltd. has become an international organization with significant resources to develop, promote, and support the practice of Centering Prayer, which can lead to contemplative prayer.  For details, please visit .


Centering Prayer groups have existed in and around the Puget Sound region for more than 20 years, and hold retreats and training sessions multiple times during the year.  In addition, noted speakers such as Father Keating and others come to this area due to its long history with the international organization, as well as our devoted practitioners. 


Contemplative Outreach Puget Sound-North supports Centering Prayer in King County east of lake Washington, Snohomish county, Island county, and Skagit county.   For Seattle area groups, visit
