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.

Introduction to Centering Prayer

Saturday:9:30am–6:00pm, Sunday 9:30am-2;00pm

This 2 day retreat offers a practical and experiential introduction to the Centering Prayer. Centering Prayer is a non-vocal, non-conceptual method of meditation that is for everyone. The prayer offers a method of consenting to God’s presence and action within oneself and in daily life. It invites God to transform us and to help this to grow spiritually. Establishing a practice of centering prayer can change a person’s life and become the foundation of a deep personal spirituality. The introduction is based upon the writings of Fr. Thomas Keating O.C.S.O.
