Excerpt from “Creation of Adam” – Michelangelo ( Sistine Chapel, The Vatican)

Centering Prayer 2-day Commuter Retreat

at The Church of Conscious Harmony

November 12-13, 2021  $30

Led by Jackie Strashun

 Transformed in Christ, these blessed souls will live the life of God and not their own life although, indeed, it will be their own life because God’s life will be theirs…through a union of love. As he said in the

Song of Songs: “Put me as a seal upon your heart” …the heart signifies the soul in which

God dwells in this life as a seal.

John of the Cross, The Spiritual Canticle

 

Please join us for this two-day, in-person Centering Prayer retreat. Our time together will be a prayerful, quiet, spacious time of consent to God’s presence, action and love. There will be times for spiritual companioning, if desired, and time for silence and solitude on the church grounds. Bring a bag lunch for yourself both days. Coffee, tea and snacks provided during breaks. Currently masking is optional. COVID safety protocols may change at the time of the retreat based on local conditions.
