A One-Day Silent, Centering Prayer Retreat
For the Experienced Centering Prayer Practitioner
Monday, September 21, 2020 / 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
This retreat will replicate for one day the rhythm of the extended retreats
at St. Benedict’s Monastery in Snowmass, CO. There will be four rounds
of one-hour sits with a walking meditation in between each one. Those
attending will be invited to participate in as many rounds as they would
like. The retreat will be in silence except for brief conversations at the
beginning and closing. The retreat will be led by Don Carroll, a member
of the Wesleyan Contemplative Order. Don says, “When I had the chance
to visit with Father Keating during a Snowmass ten-day retreat, he
encouraged me to find a way to extend the rhythm of the time of my
practice. Since then I have found that a daily practice is deeply enriched
by an extended-day practice as well as a yearly practice of a week or
longer. This day-long retreat will address that intermediate rhythm of
giving experienced practitioners the opportunity to settle deeply into the
rhythm of their Centering Prayer practice for a day.”
