Nine-Day Intensive and Post-Intensive Retreat

November 29, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - December 7, 2023 @ 11:00 am


This retreat offers three tracks simultaneously: Intensive I, Intensive II and Post Intensive. For everyone, there will be three sets of two 30 minute periods of Centering Prayer daily. Intensive I and Intensive II will watch video talks from Fr. Thomas Keating’s Spiritual Journey. Intensive I focuses on “The Human Condition and the Spiritual Journey”. Intensive II focuses 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. You choose the track that works best for you. Any of the tracks may be repeated multiple times. If this is your first Intensive retreat of this length, we suggest you choose Intensive I.

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 grand silence.

Prerequisite: A daily practice of Centering Prayer for six months or longer.

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

The fee includes all meals and lodging. Rooms are single with a sink in the room; bathrooms are shared.
