Touching into the Sacred: A Contemplative Centering Prayer Weekend

August 14, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - August 16, 2020 @ 12:00 pm


This weekend, anchored in silence and Centering Prayer, will offer opportunities to connect with ourselves, with God, and with others, surrounded by the summer beauty of the Connecticut shore. The schedule will include three Centering Prayer sessions, an overview of the practice, evening prayer, lectio divina, and other contemplative practices. Remaining hours are unscheduled for private prayer and reflection.

The retreat will begin with dinner on Friday evening at 5:30 p.m. and end by noon after a closing session on Sunday. All meals on Saturday and Sunday breakfast will be in silence. No previous experience with Centering Prayer is required, however, if you are new to a silent retreat or Centering Prayer, please contact either Claire (crusowicz@hotmail.com) or Anne (asimpkinson@gmail.com) before you register.
