Lenten Contemplative Retreat

March 23


This retreat is an opportunity to practice silent prayer in community. Practitioners of all

levels are welcome; there will be a brief time of instruction for anyone new to Centering

Prayer. The primary practice during the retreat will be group Centering Prayer, but we

will also practice “lectio divina” or sacred reading (the ancient monastic practice of

listening to the Spirit speak to our hearts through Scripture), “lectio natura” (an outdoor

practice to connect to God through nature), and Conscious Practical Work (a practice of

presence and attention). The retreat will be mostly in silence except for times of

instruction and reflection on the prayer practices and at the closing circle.

Retreat Coordinators: Cary Gaunt, Karen Guthrie, Rev. Duncan Hilton, Michael


Date and Time: beginning Friday, March 23rd at 6 pm with a light supper (people are

welcome earlier in the afternoon for optional retreat time) and ends Saturday evening

after supper, around 7:00 pm.

Cost: All are welcome at Hallelujah Farm and we are grateful for your support in the

amount you feel you can afford. As a guideline, suggested contributions for one

overnight stay and four meals is $100.

Farm. Accommodations are in shared double rooms.
