One-Day Silent, Centering Prayer Retreat in the Snowmass Rhythm

For the Experienced Centering Prayer Practitioner
A One-Day Silent, Centering Prayer Retreat in the Snowmass Rhythm

This retreat will replicate for one day the rhythm of the extended retreats at St. Benedict’s Monastery in Snowmass, CO. There will be four rounds of one-hour sits with a walking meditation in between each one. Those attending will be invited to participate in as many rounds as they would like. The retreat will be in silence except for brief conversations at the beginning and closing. The retreat will be led by Don Carroll, a member of the Wesleyan Contemplative Order. Don says, "When I had the chance to visit with Father Keating during a Snowmass ten-day retreat, he encouraged me to find a way to extend the rhythm of the time of my practice. Since then I have found that a daily practice is deeply enriched by an extended-day practice as well as a yearly practice of a week or longer. This day-long retreat will address that intermediate rhythm of giving experienced practitioners the opportunity to settle deeply into the rhythm of their Centering Prayer practice for a day."
