October 28, 2023 | Saturday 10:00 a.m.—3:00 p.m.
Cost: $60 ($20 non-refundable deposit to secure your seat, includes noon meal)
For those who are familiar and comfortable with 12-step programs, we invite you to join us in this guided exploratory workshop retreat to learn about how you may use centering prayer as a simple meditation method for an 11th-step practice. This method of contemplative prayer opens the mind and heart to the Higher Power and can be a means of deep relational encounter. This workshop retreat is open to all persons who wish to begin a meditation practice, who want supportive information for their practice, or who are interested in deepening their current meditation practice. In addition to a centering prayer introduction, there will be time for questions, discussion and sharing, and practice of centering prayer as well. It is our hope you leave feeling enriched, supported and encouraged as you continue your journey.
Please register by October 21. Once we have received your registration, we will send you an invoice for the retreat. Please know we have scholarships available; if you would like to make a request, email S. Carol Ann at [email protected]. We strongly encourage you to add [email protected] to your email contacts to ensure the delivery of emails regarding your retreat.
