Evening of Contemplative Prayer

There’s a lot demanding our attention. The best thing to cut through the noise? Space to hear God speak. You don’t need a crowd of people or a big cathedral to have a conversation with God, but there’s undeniable power in experiencing prayer together under one roof.

Join us for a simple time of quiet presence to the merciful heart of God within us and within our broken/ blessed world. We will shelter the gift of silence with a guided invitation to prayer and the availability of supportive practices. Please call each week to confirm participation and location.

Deepening Our Wisdom Years: A Spirituality of Aging

Download flyer

As we grow older, we become more conscious of the new realities that life holds for us. We invite you to come together and grow in community with others who are experiencing the process of aging. In a setting of prayer, peace and beauty we will share what is stirring in us, listen to valuable reflections and enter into prayer that will touch our hearts and spirits. All of this will enrich our later years, offer us wisdom and peace, and help us to become more conscious of God’s presence in all aspects of our lives.

Upcoming Dates:


October 29, 2019- Aging and Mystics: Where the Two Meet
As we age, many of us have more time to “stop and smell the roses”. Over the centuries, many women and men have done just that and have connected with God at a deep level. Join us as we explore what these Mystics may have to teach us about ourselves, our universe and our relationship with God.

  • November 12, 2019- Praying Our Feelings
  • November 26, 2019- Developing an Attitude of Gratitude: Living with a- Thankful Heart
  • December 10, 2019- Cherishing Our Relationships
Time: 10 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Cost: $30/session (includes lunch)

World Contemplative Spiritualities: Spiritual Practices of Wisdom Traditions
Nov 9 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
World Contemplative Spiritualities: Spiritual Practices of Wisdom Traditions

World Contemplative Spiritualities: Spiritual Practices of Wisdom Traditions

Human beings yearn for deep understanding of our place in the universe and our relationship with ultimate reality. Wisdom Traditions agree that there is an infinite Source to our existence, that human beings in our core are one with this divine Source, and that the true purpose of life is conscious experience of this ultimate Source. In this retreat, we will experience contemplative spiritualities and practices from a variety of traditions (Christian centering prayer, Hindu passage recitation, Zen mindfulness meditation, Sufi love poetry, and Nature spirituality walk), offering opportunities to engage as a group in the spirituality of stillness and attentiveness. The paths are many and rich, each of them revealing that we have an innate capacity to live life with deep purpose and great joy.

Contemplative Spirituality Retreats
In this age of global diversity and cosmic wonder, the time is ripe for a reverential, wide-angle appreciation of the One Spirit and the Many Paths. Contemplative spirituality retreats are gentle spaces where attendees can reflect on the lived experience of our unique spiritual journeys. The aim is to encourage moment-to-moment awareness of the One Spirit in all areas of our lives.

Past Participants
My hopes were beyond realized. Amazing experience which I will hold in my heart.
Wini is the complete package: content, presence, group dynamics, inspiring, authentic, human.
 Lots of good resources, including the bibliography to expand my reading and practice in contemplative modes.
The presentation and materials were excellent. I love the bibliography.
