This paper examines the relationship between Centering Prayer and Family Systems Theory to seek evidence as to whether the transformational process in Centering Prayer, a divine "therapy of the soul," describes something of the same human experience as the therapeutic process, in Family Systems Theory, of moving toward self-differentiation. The research consists of ten qualitative research interviews, coded and analyzed with the help of NVivo software. The author uses Contemplative Prayer as a theological lens and Bowen Theory as a socio-behavioral lens with which to interpret the findings. The author concludes that there is some evidence to support the claim that Centering Prayer and Family Systems Theory describe something of the same human phenomena
