CENTERING PRAYER

Be still and know that I am God. - Psalm 46:10

 

One of the greatest gifts you can give yourself is a meditation practice. There is no greater way to live in communion with God.  “The essence of Centering Prayer is consenting to God’s presence and action within.” Contemplative Outreach.

 

Please join our emerging Centering Prayer community.

No previous experience is necessary, instruction will be available. Everyone is welcome.

THE SACRED JOURNEY

Our Sacred Journey programs are multi-dimensional in approach using book discussion groups, films, teachings on contemplative life, and meditation; all in relation to the most critical spiritual and social concerns of our time.

Our view is that to be in full relationship with God is to be in loving solidarity with our global family of sisters and brothers. We feel that the work for equal justice for all and our contemplative life are inextricable from one another and inform the fullness of a balanced spiritual life. We are inspired by the Episcopal Church’s baptismal covenant to “Seek and serve God in every person, strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being.”

 

We take seriously the Gospel mandate given by Jesus to feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty, welcome the stranger, clothe the naked, care for the sick, and visit the prisoner. (Matthew 25:35-36)

 

Join us! All are welcome.

 

NOW ON ZOOM

SILENT SATURDAYS

On the fourth Saturdays of each month the monks lead a morning of silence and meditation at the monastery Guest House Library and grounds. The grounds of the monastery offer a beautiful setting for sinking into our inherent inner peace to connect with God.

 

Join us as we engage Christian meditation practices such as Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina to become quiet, open our hearts, and spend time with God. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, you are welcome. No previous experience is necessary. Refreshments provided.

 

NOW ON ZOOM. For Zoom link, email to: br.dennis@aol.com

Saturdays 9am – 12pm

NEXT: April 23

YOGA WITH GRETA

Sister Greta has been involved with yoga for over 40 years! She co-founded Yoga Works in 1986 and designed and opened over 7 yoga studios.

 

Sister Greta recognizes the great gifts that yoga has to offer at all stages of life. Her retreats are deeply rewarding and restoring. The retreats are designed for beginner to intermediate students. Breathing and meditation practices are emphasized.

GARDENING

An important element of our 2022 relocation plan is to create a large-scale organic gardening project to grow food, flowers, and herbs, some of which can be sold at the local farmer’s markets and used to support other partner programs.
