Centering Prayer – Every Wednesday Evening

Jan. 09 (Thu), 2014 - Jan. 07 (Thu), 2016
6:30 pm - 7:30 pm,

Fee: No Fee

This program is offered every Wednesday evening all year long.

Come join us for an hour of silent meditation Wednesday evenings based on Abbot Thomas Keating’s Centering Prayer method which is now practiced by thousands of people worldwide. This meditation method teaches us to gently let go of our mind’s busy thoughts so as to rest in the Divine Presence, the ground of all being. If faithfully practiced, the fruits of Centering Prayer are emotional healing, profound peace, and graced relations with God, others, our true selves, and all creation. For more information, phone Kitty Parisi, 732-229-1795

During this retreat we will explore the feminine divine and how women have a significant role to play in bringing balance and healing to our world of war and suffering.

We will look at the role of women in Scripture as well as the call to transformation in Christian tradition.  The history of God as Mother will be examined and the importance of compassion in the process of healing for ourselves as individuals as well as the global community.

We will also look at the experience of some contemporary women whose struggle for new life is a testimony to the resilience of the human spirit and the redeeming power of God’s grace.  This precious time with God, our sisters and ourselves will leave us forever changed!

Please note: There will be a period of silence throughout the house each morning of the retreat until 10:00 am which includes silence at breakfast.

At Sea With God Preached Retreat, (11/30 – 12/4), Margaret Silf

Nov. 30 (Mon), 2015 - Dec. 04 (Fri), 2015
3:00 pm - 1:00 pm,

Fee: $395, $100 Deposit

The metaphor of seafaring can be a helpful way to explore our spiritual journeying. We will reflect on our lives and circumstances as the “boat” in which we make the voyage of life. What are we carrying on board – both precious cargo and excess baggage? What has moved us forward in our journeying, and how do we navigate our way through the unpredictable seas of life? What causes the storms, and how might we deal with them? What about the times when we feel we are simply “going nowhere”? Where are we going, where do we find our anchor points, and how do we keep moving on?

Please note that in the spirit of prayerfulness for the retreat, there may be periods of observed silence each day.
