EIGHT-DAY CENTERING PRAYER RETREAT
This retreat offers an in-depth experience of silent prayer for those who already have an established practice of Centering Prayer of 6 months or more. It is an opportunity for deeper union with God through communal sharing of silence and stillness. For those making their first week-long silent retreat, the “Intensive” track will offer periods of silent prayer as well as presentation and discussion of videos by Fr. Thomas Keating. The simultaneous “Post-Intensive” track, for those who have already completed an Intensive retreat, includes more periods of silent prayer instead of the videos. Fr. Bill Sheehan has been an integral voice for Centering Prayer even since the earliest days of the movement. Over the past four decades, he has continually provided his wisdom and presence to the Centering Prayer community, as he will in this retreat. We joyfully welcome him back with us again.
