“The Father spoke one Word, which was His Son, and this Word He speaks always in eternal silence, and in silence must it be heard by the soul” —Saint John of the Cross

Join us for a soulfully rich experience of silent consent to the presence and activity of God in the deepest center of your being. This silent retreat will be supported by several periods of centering prayer along with ample times for walking, reading, journaling, rest, and prayers with the monastic community of Mount Saint Scholastica.

Those with experience of centering prayer, as well as those new to this prayer method, are welcome. An introductory overview of centering prayer will be offered on Friday evening.

This retreat is being offered in partnership with Contemplative Outreach of Kansas City. 

Please register by October 20. Once we have received your registration, we will send you an invoice for the retreat.
