Toward Emptiness: A Post-Intensive 8-Day Centering Prayer Retreat

July 14, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - July 21, 2023 @ 1:00 pm

$780

This post-intensive retreat will consist of continuous periods of Centering Prayer from before sunrise until the dinner hour, with breaks for meals. Attendees may participate in as much prayer as they are called to. Short pauses for entering and leaving the silence will be offered every 30 minutes. There will be no teaching and no reading during this immersion in silence. Veteran retreat leaders Chris Frantsvog and Paul Witmer look forward to hosting you for this journey into deep silence.

Benet House Retreat Center in Rock Island, Illinois, is a retreat center run by the sisters of St. Benedict. Built in 2001 as a place apart to seek the Holy One for persons of all faiths, Benet House offers a setting of peace, beauty and tranquility for all. Cost is $780, which includes room with private bathroom and all meals. A limited number of double occupancy rooms are available for $710.
