The Word of God, in Silence and Sound: Centering Prayer in the Context of the Divine Office
September 16, 2022 @ 3:00 pm - September 18, 2022 @ 1:00 pm
Contemplative Immersion Retreat with Fr. Justin Lanier
This contemplative immersion retreat will flow through periods of Centering Prayer, walking meditation, teaching, and the simple chant of the Divine Office. The seasons of the night and day will be marked with the corresponding praying the Offices of Matins, Lauds, Prime, Terce, Sext, None, Vespers, and Compline as an expression and support of our intensive Centering Prayer weekend. There will be a basic instruction in chant at the start of our retreat, and no prior musical training or experience is required.
Fr. Justin Lanier serves as Priest and Curate of Saint Clement’s Church, Philadelphia. He is a retreat leader with a devotion to intensive contemplative immersion practice. He conducts Centering Prayer workshops and classes in contemplative practice and theology. Fr. Justin’s early training includes monastic formation at Saint Benedict’s Trappist Monastery, Snowmass, Colorado, under Dom. Joseph Boyle, O.C.S.O., and Fr. Thomas Keating, O.C.S.O., as well as at Tofukuji Rinzai Zen Training Monastery, Kyoto, Japan, under Keido Fukushima Roshi.
