UPCOMING HALF-DAY CENTERING PRAYER RETREATS
August 21, 2021

“What you’re looking for is where you’re looking from.”
Saint Francis of Assisi
In his book, New Seeds of Contemplation, Thomas Merton called our “thought-made self,” the story we tell ourselves about who we are, our “false self,” distinguishing it from our deepest “true self.” In this half-day retreat, David Morgan from the COMW leadership team will help us explore our true selves and facilitate a discussion on the teachings of Thomas Merton, Richard Rohr, Basil Pennington, Thomas Keating and others. We will attempt to surrender our grip on our false, “separate-from-God” selves, and learn to rest at our center, to reside at the core of our being, and relax into the Peace that surpasses all understanding. The program will include three sits of centering prayer, each 30 minutes in length.
