Centering Prayer Intensive Retreat
Sacred Pathways into Centering Prayer
...incarnating the breath, gesture and chant
This retreat is a holistic multi-dimensional approach to Centering Prayer. It draws as its inspiration the words from scripture. "Love God with all your heart, with all your soul, with your mind, and all your strength." It introduces the wisdom of safe and simple body movement, breath, Christian Chant and gesture as a way to create receptivity in the body, breath, mind and heart. These contemplative tools are used as vestibules to prepare you for the practice of Centering Prayer. They are systematically taught to deepen your retreat experience and, with supportive handouts, enable you to practice them on your return home.
The intensive retreat was introduced as a Contemplative Outreach pilot program in Santa Fe 2003 and has been very well received by those with long-term Centering Prayer practices at Contemplative Outreach retreats in Oregon, Washington and New Mexico.
This retreat begins Monday 2, April (registration 4-6pm), dinner at 6pm, and ends Sunday, 8 April, following breakfast at 9am.
