A. End 2020 Report

1. Currently, we have a total of 23 Centering Prayer Groups

2. We had two CPG Heads and Alternates Meetings. These were on July 2 and October 1, starting at 9:30a.m. - 12:00p.m.

- both meetings were done virtually using Zoom as we were on quarantine since March due to the pandemic.

- we had near perfect attendance which we had not achieved before as people had the time and did not have to contend
with distance and the horrendous traffic

- each CPG head reported on the status and issues, if any, of their various CPGs.

- presentations reflected that COP was alive and imbued with renewed energy, creativity, and enthusiasm.

- a new CPG was formed during the pandemic

- about more than half of the groups continued their prayer meetings using various online platforms such as Zoom,
Messenger and Google Meet.

- those that could not meet because none of its members were tech-savvy were invited to join those meeting groups meeting regularly.

- a list of CPGs open to inviting people to their groups was drawn up, giving the time, day and contact details of their prayer meetings.

- reports revealed that there are more members now attending their group's prayer meeting than before.

3. Blessings of the Pandemic

- more time for prayer and reflection

- more people attending prayer meetings and activities/events of COP

- better connectivity and communication among members through the internet

- learning new skills/use of technology to help propagate Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina through online workshops, recollections, and retreats

- people volunteering to help with their skills and talents to spread Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina.

B. Plans for 2021

1. Quarterly CPG Heads and Alternates Meeting via Zoom every second month of the Quarter (Feb., May, Aug., Nov)

2. Facilitator's Training - Quarter 2

3. Recollection for CPG Heads and Alternates - Mid-year (July or August)

4. Follow-up search for potential CPG Heads to imbue the COS with fresh ideas and greater energy, qualities of a younger batch of members.

Silence is necessary for our selfhood to emerge, for our own true self to emerge out of the chaos – out of the turbulence of feeling the history of pain, loss and fantasy, of memory, the whole chaos, the jungle of our mind. And the older we get, the more of the jungle there may be. Before we can even begin to appreciate what one’s true self means, we have to enter into a deeper commitment to this work of silence, and then we begin to discover what silence does.
