with Mary Jane Yates and Liz Rees (via Zoom)
Learn about or refresh your knowledge of Centering Prayer and deepen the experience during a weekend of quiet contemplation. Centering Prayer, a method introduced by Fr. Thomas Keating, focuses on consenting to God’s presence and action within. Liz and Mary Jane will introduce the basics of Centering Prayer during the day on Friday. They will then lead periods of Centering Prayer plus facilitate continued learning through the rest of the retreat. Teachings will be derived from Contemplative Outreach source materials as well as resources from other spiritual teachers. (Teachings are optional for those experienced in CP).
