Deepening our Consent to Transformation: 
A Centering Prayer Retreat

Franciscan Spiritual Center
609 S. Convent Road
Aston, PA 19014


Centering Prayer is a prayer which opens us to God’s presence and action.  Centering Prayer is also about a process of interior transformation initiated by God and leading, if we consent, to divine union.  Awareness of the invitation to transformation through a deepening relationship with God facilitates our opening to God’s presence and action.

This retreat includes multiple periods of Centering Prayer and conferences on the conceptual background of Centering Prayer with an emphasis on the Seven Stages of Centering Prayer, a hierarchy created by Fr. Thomas Keating OCSO.  The extended periods of silence in this retreat support the process of transformation in God.

Date, Time, and Cost:

This program begins at 7:00 PM on Friday, September 8, 2017 and ends at 11:00 AM on Sunday, September 10 2017.  The cost is $190 for residents or $140 for commuters.  There is a $50 non-refundable deposit.  Your registration is not confirmed until your deposit is received. Registration begins on May 1, 2017.
