Centering Prayer is the opening of the mind and heart – our whole being – to God, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond thoughts, words and emotions. The three-day retreat is an opportunity to develop and sustain a regular practice of this method of praying. There will be instruction in Centering Prayer along with periods of Centering Prayer. This retreat can serve as a great extended introduction to Centering Prayer or it can deepen a daily practice. It will offer a taste of the longer Centering Prayer retreat experience.

This retreat will be led by Tom Ward.

The Rev. Tom Ward is the retired university chaplain at the University of the South and now spends his days focusing on the contemplative dimension of the gospel, teaching Centering Prayer, and leading retreats.
