The Welcoming Prayer: Three-Day Centering Prayer Retreat
Sewanee, TN 37375
Centering Prayer is the opening of the mind and heart – our whole being – to God, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond thoughts, words and emotions. The 3-Day retreat is an opportunity to develop and sustain a regular practice of this way of praying. There will be instruction in Centering Prayer along with periods of Centering Prayer. This might serve as a good introduction to Centering Prayer or as deeper retreat experience. No previous experience of Centering Prayer is required.
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.
