Retreats

 

In a retreat setting the length of the periods of Centering Prayer are extended… Lengthening or multiplying the periods of Centering Prayer can help to deepen the experience of interior silence…we are perfectly capable of an extended period of resting in God, especially with the support of a group.

– Thomas Keating Open Mind Open Heart
