2018 Scheduled Retreats
Introduction to Centering Prayer
May 4 ~ 7
Retreat will include instruction and practice of Centering Prayer. This retreat is for those who
wish to learn the practice and those who wish to increase or strengthen their practice.
August 3 ~ 6
Lectio Divina, divine or sacred reading, is an ancient Christian comtemplative practice found in the
beginnings of monasticism. This prayer fosters a receptive attitude as we listen to how God is addressing us
in a particular text of Scriipture. The Living Word of God speaks to us where we are on our path today, enlightens
us, guides our daily living, and opens us to a deeper relationship with God.
Both retreats will be facilitated by Barb Kollenkark,
who has been practicing and teaching Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina for 30 years.
