"Basking in His Presence" Prayer Retreats
A time of learning to let go . . .
The purpose of the "Basking in His Presence" Retreat is for us to place ourselves in a situation in which our time is free for God and we can focus all of our attention on Him.

We simply come to Him with empty hands and receptive hearts, desiring to fulfill, in our small way, the first commandment by giving Him our time and attention.

These retreats are a time to discover how to "let go," in order to simply "be" in the presence of God. We were created for intimate friendship with God, and God longs for us to give Him the opportunity to speak His deep peace and love into our souls.

Would you like to spend an evening and a day "away from it all" and revitalize your love relationship with God? If your answer is "Yes," then plan to attend a "Basking in His Presence" Retreat.

Quiet Retreats -- "Basking in His Presence" Prayer Retreats -- are scheduled wherever and whenever we are invited. Usually lasting just under a day (Friday evening to mid-afternoon Saturday) they are a gentle introduction (or refresher to practitioners) to Contemplative -- or Centering -- prayer. Included in the Retreat is a "taste," also, of Lectio Divina: a way of listening to Scripture with the heart as well as the ears.

The Retreat is a time to "be with the Lord," a time for each retreatant to experience resting in God and in His love in silence. Specific instruction is given by the two presenters on Centering prayer and on Lectio Divina. In keeping with that which we have shared through Union Life magazine over the years, the schedule for these Retreats includes some teaching, some times of silent contemplative "sitting," some times of listening to Scripture, and some times of sharing. It is for all -- beginners as well as people for whom Centering prayer is a part of their daily life.
