An Invitation to Deepen Your Centering Prayer Practice.  Plan to attend this special silent retreat in Spring.  The retreat is designed for those with experience in Centering Prayer and interested in deepening their spiritual practice away from ordinary life in an atmosphere of silence, solitude and community.our lady photo

Retreats are a way to take one's relationship with God and one's practice deeper.  They offer time and space away from the busy demands of daily life and allow the mind, body and spirit to surrender to God's presence and action within.  Retreats are a common practice in many spiritual traditions and are a valuable tool to aid one's interior transformation.

The chapter's annual Centering Prayer Retreat is held at the Montserrat Jesuit Retreat House, Lake Dallas, Texas, which is located about 30 miles north of downtown Dallas and 18 miles from DFW International airport.  The retreat house sits on the shores of Lake Lewisville in a gracious and contemplative lakeside setting, with private rooms & bath, and good food.  We welcome back Fr Bill Sheehan (see his biography) from Lowell, Massachusetts, who will be our retreat director.  He has a long association with Contemplative Outreach and gives many retreats annually throughout the country.

The retreat program will consist of periods of centering prayer, daily Contemplative Eucharist & Lectio Divina, a teaching or reflection on two mornings by the retreat director, private meetings with spiritual directors and ample free time for reflection and walking the contemplative grounds at Montserrat.

Persons of all faith traditions are welcome.  The only requirement for retreatants is to have an established daily practice of centering prayer for at least six months.
