The season of Lent offers the prospect to clear away the ashes of what has been to make room for new growth to emerge. Contemplative wisdom invites everyone to embrace this time of silence and sparsity as an opportunity to reveal hidden truths.

Since its founding in 1987 by Fr. Richard Rohr, the Center for Action and Contemplation (CAC) has begun each day with a 20-minute period of contemplative prayer that he calls the “Daily Sit.” He teaches that the contemplative mind can ignite the kind of spiritual wisdom that supports inner and outer transformation.

A series of free Virtual Daily Sit Meditations will be broadcast on YouTube from 1-1:30 p.m. each Friday of Lent. Led by CAC faculty and staff, these Virtual Sit Meditations offer the global CAC community a time of shared reflection, stillness and insight. Transformed people can help to transform the world and become a catalyzing force for change of consciousness.
