Retreats are a way to take one's relationship with God and one's practice deeper. They offer time and space away from the busyness and demands of daily life, and allow the mind, body, and spirit to surrender to God's presence and action within. Retreats are a common practice in many spiritual traditions and are a valuable tool to aid one's interior transformation in Christ.
This Nine-Month Course enables one to practice contemplative living according to one’s own lifestyle. Formation is offered in contemplative prayer, lifestyle and activity through:
¨ Deepening our experience of Centering Prayer, Lectio Divina, the Active Prayer, Logging, the “Welcoming Prayer” Practice and Spiritual Reading
¨ Nurturing the contemplative dimension of one’s lifestyle by exercising discernment, simplicity, forgiveness, integrity and commitment.
