8-Day Centering Prayer Intensive/Post-intensive Retreat with Fr. Bill Sheehan
August 4 @ 4:30 pm - August 11 @ 1:30 pm$975
This retreat will offer both intensive and post-Intensive tracks simultaneously. The intensive track will include selected videos from Fr. Keating’s Spiritual Journey videos with discussion in addition to periods of Centering Prayer. The post-intensive track will not include the videos but will provide for additional periods of Centering Prayer, although the video sessions will be open to everyone. All participants will observe grand silence except when participating in the video sessions. We are so pleased that Fr. Sheehan will be returning to guide this retreat for Contemplative Outreach of St. Louis. (The times listed below are the arrival and departure times. The retreat will begin with dinner in the evening of August 4 and end after lunch on August 11.)
The retreat will be held at the Marianist Retreat Center in Eureka Missouri, just 25 minutes southwest of St Louis. The retreat center includes 120 beautiful acres of land along the Meramec River with trails through woods and meadows, a labyrinth, a sculpture garden, wildlife and many spots for prayer and meditation. The center is also home to an extensive collection of the art of Br. Mel Meyer. All rooms have private baths, and the cost of the retreat includes room and all meals.
The cost is $925 if registration and nonrefundable deposit is received by May 1, and $975 after that date. Partial scholarships are available.
