Two Night Retreat on Centering Prayer

Directed by Mark Dannenfelser and Roberta White
Friday, 6pm, July 24, 2014 through Sunday, July 26, 2014, 1 PM
Centering Prayer is a method that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplation by cultivating interior silence and purity of heart. Centering Prayer was distilled from the profound and ancient teachings of the Christian contemplative heritage first evident in the early Desert Fathers and Mothers. The method, as taught by Trappist monk, Fr. Thomas Keating, O.C.S.O., uses silence and attention to encourage the development of alert receptivity of God’s presence and action within. Two tracks will be offered throughout the weekend: “Introductory” and “Experienced”.

Track One: The introductory track is for those with little to no experience with Contemplative prayer. Participants will learn Centering Prayer method, which is a receptive method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer. This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.

Track Two: The experienced track is for those with an established Centering Prayer practice. Participants will learn the Welcoming Prayer, which is a method of consenting to God’s presence and action in our physical and emotional reactions to events and situations in daily life. The purpose of the Welcoming Prayer is to deepen our relationship
with God through consenting in the ordinary activities of our day. An atmosphere of silence will be maintained for half of the retreat.
Cost: $300.00, includes 6 meals, private bedroom and bathroom, beautiful wooded grounds and walking paths along the Chattahoochee River.
