Centering Prayer Intensive/Post-Intensive: A Silent Retreat
Sunday, May 20, 2018 at 6:00 p.m. to Saturday, May 26, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.
Contemplative prayer is a process of interior transformation. A restructuring of consciousness takes place which empowers one to perceive, relate, and respond with increasing sensitivity to the divine presence in, through, and beyond everything that exists.
Enter into a more profound level of spiritual practice in a time of silence & community.
Our retreat will offer two tracks:
Intensive – designed to intensify one’s practice of Centering Prayer and to provide a conceptual framework for the prayer through viewing Thomas Keating’s video series on “The Spiritual Journey.”
Post-Intensive – running concurrently, designed for those who are already familiar with “The Spiritual Journey.” There will be additional time for Centering Prayer and daily Lectio Divina.
This retreat is for those who have some experience of Centering Prayer. Each day includes several periods of Centering Prayer and walking meditation, liturgy, free time for being in nature, reflection, rest, and opportunity for gentle yoga and bodywork.
