9-day Intensive and Post-Intensive Retreat

March 15, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - March 23, 2023 @ 11:00 am


This retreat offers two tracks simultaneously: Intensive I 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. The Intensive I retreat will watch video talks from Fr. Thomas Keating’s Spiritual Journey, focusing on “The Human Condition and the Spiritual Journey”. The Post Intensive retreat has no videos and an additional hour of Centering Prayer each day.

Lectio Divina and a contemplative Eucharist will be offered daily, as well as optional soul-friending with the staff. Throughout the retreat, we will be in silence.

Pre-requisite: A daily practice of Centering Prayer for six months or longer.

The retreat will be facilitated by Susan Turpin, Fr. Bill Sheehan, OMI, and Marty Badgett. Susan, Marty, and Fr. Bill have served within the Contemplative Outreach community for many years and led many Centering Prayer retreats and workshops.

The retreat begins Wednesday, March 15 with registration from 3:00 to 5:00, an opening session at 5:00pm, and dinner at 6:00pm. We end on Thursday, March 23 at 11:00am (lunch optional).
