A 5-hour online Centering Prayer Retreat

Take a day to re-center and deepen your practice as explore what it means to consent to God's being (presence) and becoming (action) within.

Our time together will include small group sharing, contemplative teaching, and multiple centering prayer practice sessions as well as time away from the computer for reflection.

Explore the "Two Consents" of Centering Prayer:

Consenting to God's Presence: Resting in God as the Being of our being, beyond our busy thinking, feeling and doing.

Consenting to God's Action: Allowing God to unfold in us, becoming the flowing Source from whom our life emerges moment to moment, revealing our authentic and true self.

Retreat Format

Contemplative Teaching: 2 contemplative teaching sessions grounded in moving from the head to heart

Contemplative Practice: 2 Centering Prayer, a silent prayer method that opens the heart to God’s presence.

Community Connection: Optional small group sessions for heartfelt sharing and connection with fellow contemplatives.
