The Living Flame Program from Contemplative Outreach
Starting January 2018, The Living Flame Program, which consists of seven full-day spiritual and informational retreats, will be presented from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM on the 3rd Saturday of each month (except for March).
All presenters are commissioned by Contemplative Outreach, Ltd., and all retreats will be held at St. Bartholomew’s Episcopal Church in Poway.
This spiritually enriching program is experiential as well as informational, giving participants the opportunity to evaluate, validate, and share their own experience of Centering Prayer in the context of a contemplative community. The program is designed:
- To heighten one’s awareness of the dynamic of contemplative prayer in the context of the spiritual journey.
- To offer the understanding needed to stay faithful to the Centering Prayer practice.
- To access a deeper understanding of the purification process.
- To receive and share personal experiences in a community committed to Centering Prayer.
Even if you have previously received some of this information, it is important to note that, since that time, your practice has grown and deepened and you will hear and understand these presentations at a substantially different level.
The Living Flame program is presented as a single package and requires a $200 payment before it begins. Partial scholarships are available. To hold your place, a non-refundable deposit of $50 is required.
