Online Event: Dealing with Distractions During Centering Prayer

November 7


“I’ve tried Centering Prayer, but my mind just won’t settle down!” If you’ve ever said this, or something like it, then this mini-retreat is for you! We will be reflecting together on how the “monkey mind” feels like such a distraction during forms of silent prayer — and then we’ll consider how we can actually “meet the monkey” in such a way that even the noisiest thoughts can become doorways to moving deeper into prayerful silence before God. We’ll have two sessions to pray together, learn together, and support one another on the greatest of adventures — moving more deeply into the silence of Divine Love.

Special note: thanks to a generous patron of the Vallombrosa Center who has underwritten some of the costs associated with this retreat, registration is now only $25 (normally $50) per person!
