Facilitated by Mary Jane Yates and Heather Mattson McCrady
This retreat provides an opportunity to deepen the practice of Centering Prayer in an atmosphere of silence and community support. It includes six 30-minute Centering Prayer periods daily along with viewing and collectively reflecting on excerpts from the Spiritual Journey series by Fr. Thomas Keating. Retreat leaders are available for soul-friending. An established practice of Centering Prayer for at least 6-months is highly recommended. Anyone who has participated in a Centering Prayer Intensive in the past may attend and make this a Post-Intensive by not viewing the videos and adding additional time for silence and reflection.
