“Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God . . .”

On this weekend Centering Prayer Retreat, we will explore CP as an integral part of your 12 step recovery program. Some prior knowledge or practice of CP or other silent meditation practice is desirable, but not required. You can learn Centering Prayer and deepen your practice either way. This retreat is 12-step supported and will include at least one (open) 12-step meeting.

Presented by Rev. Paul Witmer

Contemplation is essentially a listening in silence, an expectancy. And yet in a certain sense, we must truly begin to hear God when we have ceased to listen. What is the explanation of this paradox? Perhaps only that there is a higher kind of listening, which is not attentiveness to some special wavelength, a receptivity to a certain kind of message, but a general emptiness that waits to realize the fullness of the message of God within its own apparent void.
--Thomas Merton
