Experiencing the Presence of God
A Retreat with Bonnie Shimizu
Bonnie is a warm, gifted and insightful retreat leader who offered a retreat through our chapter two years ago. She has been an assistant to Fr. Thomas Keating for over 28 years. 20 of those years were spent living near St. Benedict’s Monastery in Snowmass, Colorado. Her duties have included assisting in the editing of his many books and articles.
She is retired from her formal roles in Contemplative Outreach but during her time with Contemplative Outreach, Ltd., she created workshops, a study program in the Christian Contemplative Tradition and directed more than 50 teacher formations, known informally as Presenter’s Training. She has traveled both nationally and internationally leading workshops and Centering Prayer retreats. We are blessed to have her join our community for a day. Registration will remain open until available space has been filled-early registration is recommended.
