At such a time God may, perhaps, send out a shaft of spiritual light … and show you some of his secrets…

8-Day Intensive Retreat

November 1 @ 6:00 pm - November 8 @ 10:00 am


This retreat is limited to only six spaces to ensure all visitors’ safety while the risk of Covid-19 is present. Please do not hesitate to contact the venue for more information about the new measures we have put in place to keep you safe and well at the House of Prayer.

Led by Jill Benet.
Intensive Retreats provide an opportunity for participants to immerse themselves fully in the practice of Centering Prayer, often proving to be a watershed in their practice. There will be up to three hours of Centering Prayer each day and time outside meetings is held in silence, with time for personal reflection, contemplative liturgy and Lectio Divina. We will draw on material for reflection from Thomas Keating’s extensive body of work, including videos and writings. The retreat is recommended for those who have attended an Introductory Workshop and who have been practicing Centering Prayer for at least six months.

Advanced booking with the House of Prayer (below) is essential.
Arrive on Sunday in time for supper at 6pm and leave on the following Sunday after breakfast.
