Centering Prayer (weekly)
A time of prayer and contemplation in which we practice a Christ-centered form of meditation. People on all silent meditation paths are welcome. Both beginners and experienced practitioners will find this time supportive and deepening.
We are currently meeting both in person and online via Zoom. Drop-ins are welcome. If you would like to attend online, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the Zoom link.

Dale WebbSpiritual Director, President of the JCA Board
Dale Webb is a Spiritual Director currently serving on the Board of Directors of the Journey Center Association. Prior to affiliating with the Journey Center, he served as a pastor in congregational ministries and as a spiritual care chaplain in healthcare and hospice settings. He traces his current passion for contemplative spirituality to seeds planted at seminary while in preparation for ministry. Many years later, these very same seeds would come to life through the Spiritual Direction Formation Program at the Journey Center Santa Rosa. Since completing formation training, Dale has continued in the community of spiritual directors. He offers individual and group spiritual direction, facilitates contemplative prayer groups and assists with other contemplative offerings. On a personal note, Dale is an avid reader, embraces a regular practice of centering prayer, and enjoys nearly all genres of music. He is drawn to celebrate with gratitude the beauty and wonder of creation, which could be from behind the lens of a camera, on a motorcycle ride through the vineyards, or on a quiet walk in solitude along an ocean-side cliff or on a redwood forest floor.
