The Intensive Retreat provides an opportunity to deepen the practice of Centering Prayer in an atmosphere of profound silence and community support. There are six 30-minute Centering Prayer periods daily. The prayer is supported with viewing inspirational videos by Father Thomas Keating, OSB. Soul friending with the staff can be scheduled. An established practice in daily centering prayer of at least 6 months is highly recommended.
