Centering Prayer Retreat

February 21 - February 27

Robin on Tree in Winter

~ We are Extending Registration Until January 22 ~


Hosted by Contemplative Outreach of Portland & Contemplative Outreach of Willamette Valley

Come, rest in the stillness with contemplative companions, away from the busyness of daily life.

Expansive views of the Willamette Valley, walking the stations of the cross on the park-like grounds, opportunities to pray with the monks, or simply soaking in the silence, will enhance your Centering Prayer practice whether you are coming for the first time (Intensive Retreat) or returning (Post-Intensive). Intensive retreatants will watch Fr. Keating’s Spiritual Journey videos, while those on the Post-Intensive track have an extra prayer period and no videos.

The retreat is designed to deepen your established practice. Grand Silence (no eye contact) will be observed throughout, including at meals, except for opening and closing programs. Discussion after videos for the Intensive track is optional.

The retreat begins with registration 3-5 pm Monday, February 21 (please do not arrive before 3 pm) and ends at 11 am Sunday, February 27. Lunch the last day may be arranged separately from the retreat.

Registration fee: $900

Includes 6 nights in a private room with private bath and delicious meals by Bon Appetit, who will attempt to honor special diets. Elevators and one ADA room are available.
