Eight-day Centering Prayer Post-Intensive Retreat: God Is Love

August 19, 2022 @ 5:30 pm - August 27, 2022 @ 1:00 pm


God is Love: The Heart of All Creation builds on the works of Fr. Thomas Keating and is possibly his last major published series. As Fr. Thomas notes in the series:

“Everything in the universe – everything our senses observe and technology uncovers at the highest level of infinitude is prophetic witness of the Divine. The Divine Presence is happening in, through, and amidst every detail of life… penetrates all that exists … is in relationship to every part of creation … is trying to move humanity to the next stage of consciousness.”

During this Intensive Retreat, viewing of the God Is Love video series will be in silence. The retreat experience offers several periods of Centering Prayer in community each day with time for rest, reflection and enjoying the exquisite nature which envelopes the campus of St. Mary Monastery grounds. Meals are silent, with the exception of conversation at the evening meal on opening night and at the last meal on the final day of the retreat.

Susan Komis is the facilitator of the retreat and will be available for private walks and talks throughout the duration of the retreat.
