Centering Prayer

February 23 @ 6:00 pm February 25 @ 3:00 pm

In this silent retreat, you will experience a time of profound silence and praying the Scriptures as you enter into a deeper relationship with God and self. This retreat blends a rhythm of centering prayer, lectio divina, and prayer with the monastic community. There will be some time for mutual reflection on the practices.

Spiritual Directors Gwen Pickering and Laurie Erickson will be facilitating the Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina Retreat, based on the teachings of Father Thomas Keating, OSB.

There will be several 20 minute sits each day and time for quiet reflection and rest. Extended sessions of group centering prayer offer the opportunity to deepen your relationship with God and self. Enjoy the labyrinth, courtyard, walking trails, and art gallery.

Participants are invited to join the Sisters for prayer, following the daily schedule of Liturgy of the Hours.

All meals and a private room are included. You are welcome to make the retreat, whether you are just beginning the practices or are deeply formed by them.
