Contemplative Outreach of Central Pa. presents:
11th-Step retreat
October 13-15, 2017

Presenters: Nancy Cord-Baran, Michael Gidlewski, & Carolyn Yankovitz

This retreat is for people in 12-Step Recovery programs to introduce or expand and deepen the experience of Contemplative Prayer as part of a daily 12-Step Practice.

Centering Prayer is a simple method of prayer rooted in ancient Christian practice that opens us to God's presence and divine healing. It is simply moving deep within ourselves, in silence, saying nothing, asking for nothing, just being and allowing our Higher Power to be with us.

The retreat will offer an environment of solitude and silence in community with time for reflection, fellowship, and a 12-Step Meeting. For those new to Contemplative Prayer, the retreat is an Introductory Workshop on Contemplative Prayer in the context of 12-Step recovery.

For those with an established Centering Prayer practice, there will be the option of reviewing any part of the Introductory Workshop or participating in a Track Two if there is enough interest. (Please let us know when you register.)

Retreat staff have been active in 12-Step programs for many years. They have completed the Formation for Contemplative Service process of Contemplative Outreach as well as the Formation Training for Presenting and Leading Retreats for Contemplative Prayer and the 12-Steps. Brochures available.
