I AM That I AM: The Invitation at the Center of Contemplative Prayer

May 5 @ 4:00 pm - May 8 @ 12:00 pm

$460 – $535

Contemplative prayer draws us to the center of our being where Silence opens us to God’s dynamic, spacious, ever-evolving reality — the God Who is, not the God we expect. In this silent retreat, through periods of Centering Prayer; contemplative practices; simple body exercises; contemplative conversation; and quiet time for reflection, reading, and walking the grounds, we will heed the call to meet the God of unsettling mystery and grace, sometimes unfamiliar and unpredictable, sometimes wonderfully surprising and bountiful.

This silent retreat, intended for those with a Centering Prayer or other contemplative prayer practice, will draw on the writings of Thomas Keating, Ilia Delio, Teilhard de Chardin, Meister Eckhart, and others. It will offer the opportunity to explore your experiences with the Sacred and reflect on how and whether your image and relationship with the divine have changed over the years. Where is God calling to you? How are you responding?
