The Centering Prayer Post Intensive Retreat

The Centering Prayer Post Intensive Retreat is an opportunity for more extensive periods of Centering Prayer to deepen the personal practice of contemplative prayer. The Post Intensive Retreat focuses more on complete silence for the duration of the retreat with no educational component presented. All meals are silent with no conversation. A minimum of one year regular practice of Centering Prayer is a prerequisite to attend a Post-Intensive Retreat. Facilitator: Susan Komis
