This retreat offers two tracks simultaneously: Advanced Intensive II and Post Intensive. You choose the track that works best for you. For everyone, there will be three sets of two-30 minute periods of Centering Prayer daily. Advanced Intensive II will watch video talks from Fr. Thomas Keating’s Spiritual Journey, focusing on “Divine Love: The Heart of the Christian Spiritual Journey”. The Post Intensive has no videos and an additional hour of Centering Prayer each day.
Lectio Divina and a contemplative service will be offered daily, as well as optional individual meetings with the staff. Throughout the retreat, we will be in silence.
The retreat will be facilitated by Susan Turpin, Marty Badgett, and Fr. Bill Sheehan, OMI.
