CENTERING PRAYER WEEKEND RETREAT
February 16 – 18 7:00 PM Friday to 1:00 PM Sunday
A centering prayer weekend provides the time, space and discipline needed to experience the inner stillness which occurs when given the opportunity for frequent centering prayer periods alone and in common. Jesus says, “Come to me all you who are weary, and you will find rest for your souls.” (Mt. 11:28) Donation: $130/$50 non-refundable deposit. Commuters welcome.
LISTENING TO YOUR BODY’S WISDOM
February 9 – 11 7:00 PM Friday to 1:00 PM Sunday
Listening is part of discernment. Focusing is a process that helps us pay attention to the hidden wisdom that lies within our own bodies. Our bodies have a way of knowing too, not only our minds. Focusing helps us be more deeply connected to what is true inside us. Sometimes we listen to everyone but ourselves. Do you want to learn to listen more attentively to the truth within you? God speaks there too! Donation: $150; $50 non-refundable deposit. Residents and commuters welcome. Meals included for all.
