Contemplative Outreach of San Diego is an evolving community of people who practice Centering Prayer, a practice similar to meditation, which has existed within the Christian tradition for 1500 years.

It is in this spirit of reaching out to people where they are, that the Outreach Ministry exists and works to fulfill the vision of Contemplative Outreach; to unite our common search for God and the experience of the living Christ through Centering Prayer. We affirm our solidarity with the needs and rights of the whole human family and with all creation.
