Eight-Day Centering Prayer Intensive Retreat

May 17, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - May 24, 2022 @ 2:00 pm


The Eight-Day Centering Prayer Intensive Retreat offered from Tuesday, May 17 to Tuesday, May 24, 2022, provides an opportunity to deepen the practice of Centering Prayer in an atmosphere of silence and community support. This retreat follows the Contemplative Outreach guidelines for an Intensive Retreat including six 30-minute Centering Prayer periods daily. The prayer is supported with viewing and faith sharing on Thomas Keating’s Human Condition teachings from the updated Spiritual Journey series.

Retreat leaders: Leslee Anne Terpay and Br. Bernard Delcourt are available for soul-friending.

During the retreat, one will experience integrating contemplation and action through silence, solitude, community and the rhythm of this Episcopal Benedictine monastic community’s worship and prayer life including daily Holy Eucharist. An established practice of Centering Prayer for at least 6-months is highly recommended. Anyone who has participated in a Contemplative Outreach Intensive in the past may attend and make this a Post-Intensive by not viewing the videos and adding additional Centering Prayer periods.

Tuesday check-in is from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. Tuesday. Vespers begins at 5:00. Dinner then follows. Orientation begins at 7:15. The retreat concludes with lunch on the following Tuesday. (Daily Holy Eucharist is available at 9:00 a.m.). Cost for the retreat is $850. The retreat fee includes a single room and all meals. Shared single occupancy bathrooms in the hallways. Register by e-mail or phone with our Guesthouse Manager, Ms. Donna Mallory at 845-384-6660 ext 1 or at guesthouse@hcmnet.org. A nonrefundable and non-transferable deposit is required.
