contemplative prayer meeting

Contemplative prayer follows Christian meditation and is the highest form of prayer which aims to achieve a close spiritual union with God. Both Eastern and Western Christian teachings have emphasized the use of meditative prayers as an element in increasing one's knowledge of Christ.


Christian meditation is a form of prayer in which a structured attempt is made to become aware of and reflect upon the revelations of God. ... Christian meditation is the process of deliberately focusing on specific thoughts (such as a bible passage) and reflecting on their meaning in the context of the love of God.

Jeżeli "spotkanie modlitewne", to IMO skupienie = "zgromadzenie ludzi/osób" - tutaj w celu "skupienia się nad zagadnieniem".

Bo niewykluczone, że obydwa znaczenia jednocześnie. Ale zawsze można zapytać autora, jak rozumieć to "skupienie".
