Contemplative Outreach of New Jersey is a community of individuals and prayer groups who practice centering prayer. We teach centering prayer and offer events and educational programs to support those who practice centering prayer. We also teach other practices that promote a deepening of our relationship with God and support all of us attempting to live the contemplative dimension of the Gospel in daily life. All are welcome at our gatherings whether in person or on Zoom. We are a chapter of Contemplative Outreach, Ltd., a global interdenominational spiritual network founded by Fr. Thomas Keating, Fr. Carl Arico, and others.
