Introduction to Centering Prayer
January 27, 2023 - January 29, 2023$260.00
Join us for the Introduction to Centering Prayer retreat to deepen your personal relationship with God, and to prepare to receive the gift of contemplation. Introduction to Centering Prayer will allow you to be still and know God through this method of Christian silent prayer.
This retreat consists of four conferences of contemplative practice, study, and support.
Session one is a deeper look into prayer, specifically Centering Prayer, as a relationship with God.
Session two provides initial instruction into the practice of Centering Prayer itself, with the introduction to the choice and purpose of your personal sacred word.
Session three provides a deeper level of understanding of the Centering Prayer Practice that includes both the sacred word and silence as prayer, and insight into your various processes of thought. All of these combine to open you to giving consent to God’s presence and action.
Session four provides a connection between the method and practice of Centering Prayer and being fully present in everyday life by removing the obstacles to the state of union with God.
Additional retreats are scheduled throughout the year to enable you to enhance your regular practice of Centering Prayer.
