“The way we deal with the mysterious silence and darkness from which we come is the way God will find expression in the world.” ~ Br. David Steindle-Rast


What to Expect . . .

Some input will be given by the facilitator but our focus will be experiential rather than academic.  The tone of our common sessions will tend toward a spacious, contemplative approach rather than flow with conversation. Ample time for personal silence and solitude will allow room for each participant to notice and attend to their desire for God.

“Practice to become whole.” ~ Beatrice Bruteau


Time and Space for . . .

  • Incorporating some aspects of Benedictine prayer with our twice-daily Centering Prayer.
  • Spending time exploring the practice of “welcoming” as a means of extending the reach of our prayer in daily life.
  • Engaging in practices that open heart and spontaneously evolve toward contemplation (use of practices suggested by Thomas Keating, Cynthia Bourgeault and other).
  • Opportunities to be in silence and attentiveness

Each Centering Prayer weekend will include handouts, a list of suggested resources and time to view and discuss a film on the life of a different individual whose prayer and contemplation is an overflowing gift in today’s world. 

Participants who attend all three retreat weekends will come away with a personal “minute book” they have created as a reminder of their commitment to Centering Prayer and contemplative living.  (See Thomas Keating’s book, Open Mind, Open Heart.)
