Advent Centering Prayer Onsite Weekend Retreat

This weekend retreat will focus on how Centering Prayer can heighten one’s understanding and appreciation for the season of Advent.

Centering Prayer is a form of Christian silent meditation where one lets go of thoughts during periods of prayer typically lasting 20 minutes. It is rooted in the self-emptying love that forms the heart of Jesus’ teaching and life. The effect on those who practice it is an every-increasing awareness of the God’s action and presence in the course of ordinary life.

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.
