This retreat is for anyone interested in deepening their centering prayer practice. Centering prayer is a way of bringing to consciousness the unconscious “emotional wounds of a lifetime” (Thomas Keating) and enabling these stumbling blocks to becoming cornerstones for our true selves. There will be a 12-step meeting during the retreat. It is open to all, as the 12-step program is a more cognitive way of dealing with our emotional short-comings and character defects. The retreat will be in silence after the opening circle on Thursday night until lunch on Sunday. The cost is $235 per person. A $50 non-refundable, non-transferable deposit is required at the time of registration.
