In the beautiful setting of the Guest House and Abbey of the Monastery of the Holy Spirit in Conyers, Georgia, Contemplative Outreach Atlanta offers those who practice Centering Prayer with an opportunity to escape from the frenzied pace of daily life and spend a few days deepening their relationship with God in the silence. The Intensive Retreat offers a means of further developing the discipline of Centering Prayer, as well as through brief dialogue sessions held after viewing selected videos in the Spiritual Journey series by Fr. Thomas Keating. The Post-Intensive Retereat allows extra time for Centering Prayer and personal reflections, or for the optional use of audio recordings on spirituality.

Registration/check in is between 2:30 and 5:30 PM on Wednesday, September 27. Dinner is a 5:45 and the retreat begins at 6:30. The retreat concludes before lunch on Sunday October 1. Each retreat day starts at 6 am and ends around 8:30 PM, with 3 hours of free time every afternoon after lunch to rest or explore the beautiful grounds of the monastery. There is an opportunity to attend daily Mass. Every effort is made to enable retreatants who wish to participate in the Liturgy of the Hours with the monks.

The cost of the retreat is $375, which covers all meals, accommodations, and retreat fees. A non-refundable deposit is required for registration, with the balance due upon arrival a the Monastery.
