Description: 

Friday, July 19 to Sunday, July 21, 2019 Centering Prayer Retreat

Directed by Cathy Hightower, Mark Dannenfelser and Maggie Winfrey 

Delve into a deeply spiritual experience growing closer to God on a two-night Centering Prayer retreat. Transform and deepen your relationship with God through Centering Prayer. Renew your mind by absorbing the wisdom of mystical masters. Open and refresh your center with gentle yoga. Discover the healing benefits of mindful walking on beautiful natural trails.  Centering Prayer is a method that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplation by cultivating interior silence and purity of heart. Centering Prayer was distilled from the profound and ancient teachings of the Christian contemplative heritage first evident in the early Desert Fathers and Mothers. The method, as taught by Trappist monk, Fr. Thomas Keating, O.C.S.O., uses silence and attention to encourage the development of alert receptivity of God’s presence and action within.  An atmosphere of silence will be maintained during the retreat.
