I’m happy to invite you to register for an online offering Contemplative Prayer Summit that is taking place on September 23 and 24, 2023. Click here to register.
Just for the sake of transparency, I am not speaking at this event (I’m leading a retreat that week) — but plenty of wonderful people are, like Kaira Jewel Lingo, Ruben Habito, Cassidy Hall, Matthew Wright, and Margaret Benefiel! Any one of these people would be worth the cost of this event — so it’s a bargain to have access to all of them!
This event is sponsored by Closer Than Breath, which is one of the most exciting contemplative prayer organizations on the internet today. I’ve done two programs with them this year, and the plan is for me to do others in the future. But this event is a great opportunity to connect with a great group of contemplative writers and speakers, that I am confident you will love.
The Contemplative Prayer Summit is an online program designed to support anyone interested in starting or deepening a silent prayer practice, and ultimately to find healing, renewal, and spiritual insight in God.
The theme for this September summit is Contemplation and Interspirituality. This two day event will feature presentations from eight contemplative teachers drawing on the wealth of insight from the world’s great contemplative traditions.
Some of the of the topics and presentations will cover themes like:
- “This-ness”: The Franciscan spirituality of John Duns Scotus & Ilia Delio
- The way of remembrance: Sufi practices to awaken the heart
- Contemplative spirituality & activism
- This sacred body: the body’s essential role in contemplative prayer
- Nonduality and the heart of prayer
- And much more.
When you sign up, you’ll also get access to the recordings of this summit; so if (like me) you can’t attend in person, you can still enjoy the depth and beauty of wisdom from these contemplative teachers at your own pace. But to have access to the recordings, you need to register!
The Contemplative Summit costs only $99 if you register by September 1 (the price goes up starting September 2). But please do not let finances be a barrier. See the “FAQ” section on the registration page to find out how to apply for a partial scholarship.

This event is hosted by Keith Kristich and Jana Rentzel of Closer Than Breath — each of whom could easily be featured speakers at this event in their own right!

Full disclosure: if you register after clicking on this link on my website, I’ll get a commission (I appreciate it, that supports my work!) but I’m not just promoting this for the money — in all honesty, I believe so much in this line-up of speakers that I would promote this event even if there was no commission for me. (but since there is, please register after clicking on this link here, and thank you!)
