ONLINE CENTERING PRAYER RETREAT – A Three-Day Intensive

August 20 - August 23

$45.00

EXTENDING THE WALLS OF OUR INNER ROOM TO ALL OF LIFE

This retreat will be an opportunity to complement our basic Centering Prayer practice
with a deeper experiential understanding of the Active Prayer phrase, the Welcoming Prayer,
Guard of the Heart and Presence Practice–thus extending the walls of our inner room to all of life.

“If you do Centering Prayer and don’t bring it into active life –like the welcoming prayer,
the active prayer phrase, and guard of the heart – you will have trouble.”
– Thomas Keating, 2016

“It is not enough to do the practice itself even if this is done twice a day,
unless at the same time one carries into daily life the effects of the humility…
as time goes on divine therapist extends the walls of our office, so to speak,
our inner room, to the whole of life so that everything becomes a process
of purification, of healing, and of releasing the unconscious.”
– Thomas Keating (from the Heartfulness video segment)

Presenter: Bob Mischke — Denver’s Center for Contemplative Living
Serving the Contemplative Outreach community for 25 years.
Bob studied these practices under the guidance of Fr. Thomas Keating.
