Advent Centering Prayer Retreat – December 2-8, 2022

Cedarbrake Retreat Center, Belton, TX

Led by Mary Anne Best

As the divine light grows brighter,
it reveals what it contains, that is, divine life;
and divine life reveals that the Ultimate Reality is love.
Thomas Keating, The Mystery of Christ

Our retreat will be a prayerful, quiet, spacious time in community to live and move and have our being amidst the great mysteries of this sacred time of year, to listen to the beautiful music of the season, and gaze upon the glory of Advent art. We will have periods of Centering Prayer, twice-daily opportunities for prayerful movement/yoga, and each evening we will hold a Lux Divina service with Lectio Divina and the Eucharist. There will be times for spiritual companioning, if desired, and expansive spaces for time on one’s own. Retreatants will be sent a playlist of sacred music for the season to listen to throughout the retreat and beyond and to enter into the practice of Musica Divina.

The retreat cost is $800 and includes vegetarian meals and private room. It begins at 6pm on Friday and concludes by 10:30am Thursday. Retreat will be held in the Conference Center. Attendance is limited.

Currently all spaces are filled. To be on a wait list, please call 512-347-9673 or email
