What is the Welcoming Prayer?
The Welcoming Prayer is a method of actively letting go of thoughts and feelings that support the false-self system. It helps to dismantle the emotional programs of the false-self system and to heal the wounds of a lifetime by addressing them where they are stored – in the body. The method of the Welcoming Prayer includes noticing the feelings, emotions, thoughts and sensations in your body, welcoming them and then letting them go. Practicing the Welcoming Prayer offers one the opportunity to make choices free of the false-self system – responding instead of reacting to the present moment.
The purpose of the Welcoming Prayer is to deepen one’s relationship with God through consenting to God’s presence and action in the ordinary activities of daily life. In this way, the Welcoming Prayer supports all forms of prayer, like Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina, which share the purpose of growing in relationship with God through consenting to His presence and action.
Who is Mary Dwyer?

Mary is former Chairperson of the Contemplative Outreach Faculty. She previously served as National Coordinator for the Living Flame program and on the Welcoming Prayer Service Team.
Mary received her undergraduate degree from Georgetown University in Economics and was a banker and college administrator. After Chrysalis she became a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and lived in Erie, PA.
