Centering Prayer is the opening of the mind and heart – our whole being – to God, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond thoughts, words and emotions. This three-day retreat is an opportunity to develop and sustain a regular practice of this way of praying. There will be instruction in Centering Prayer along with periods of Centering Prayer. This retreat is a great extended introduction to Centering Prayer or to deepen a daily practice and will offer a taste of the longer Centering Prayer Retreat experience.
The leader will be the Rev. Tom Ward, the retired university chaplain at the University of the South who now spends his days focusing on the contemplative dimension of the gospel, teaching Centering Prayer and leading retreats.
