This retreat is an opportunity for practitioners of Centering Prayer to deepen their contemplative journey in the contemporary world.  It is a week-long experience of integrating contemplation and action through silence, solitude and community.

The retreat offers two tracks.

  • The Intensive Track is recommended for people who have completed the Introductory Workshop and who have a regular practice of Centering Prayer.  Portions of Fr. Thomas Keating’s Spiritual Journey Series will be shown for those on the Intensive Track.
  • The Post-Intensive Track is for those people who have previously made an Eight-Day Intensive Retreat.  The Post-Intensive offers increased silence and additional period of Centering Prayer.

Both the Intensive and Post-Intensive Centering Prayer Retreat provide daily experiences of silence, solitude, walking, hiking, yoga, and spiritual companionship to foster an ever-deepening level of interior silence and awareness of the presence of God in everyday life.

Retreat Director Fr. Bill Sheehan, OMI has been involved with Contemplative Outreach since 1983.  During that time he has led many Centering Prayer workshops and retreats in different parts of the country.
