Retreat-Centering Prayer Intensive

Centering Prayer Intensive, April 9-15, 2018, Monday 7:30 pm to Sunday 1:30 pm

centering prayerCentering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God’s presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself. This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.

Centering Prayer is not meant to replace other kinds of prayer. Rather, it adds depth of meaning to all prayer and facilitates the movement from more active modes of prayer — verbal, mental or affective prayer — into a receptive prayer of resting in God. Centering Prayer emphasizes prayer as a personal relationship with God and as a movement beyond conversation with Christ to communion with Him.

The source of Centering Prayer, as in all methods leading to contemplative prayer, is the Indwelling Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The focus of Centering Prayer is the deepening of our relationship with the living Christ. The effects of Centering Prayer are ecclesial, as the prayer tends to build communities of faith and bond the members together in mutual friendship and love.

Enhance your contemplative prayer life through this intensive weeklong retreat in our beautiful space. Expand the fundamentals of your centering prayer practice and deepen your spiritual life in this quiet, transformative setting. Previous centering prayer experience is required. Facilitators: Darlyne Pape and Donna Kreiensieck. Suggested donation: $535. Price includes all meals and lodging.
