Centering Prayer and the Heart of Mysticism

About This Event

The pursuit of spirituality can evolve our consciousness, expanding our understanding of reality and opening us to see things differently — beyond our usual perception of reality cloaked by perceptions and beliefs. Knowledge of mysticism is a doorway to this evolution of our consciousness. Karl Rahner, a 20th century theologian, wrote: “In the days ahead, you will either be a mystic (one who has experienced God for real) or nothing at all.”

In this retreat, we’ll explore the nature of mysticism, mystical writers such as St. John of the Cross, and the impact of mysticism in deepening our relationship with God and transforming our everyday lives. This retreat is intended for people with a regular practice of Centering Prayer or a regular meditative practice.

      Harvest Celebration 2018

    As always, a delightful evening!. Thoughts: 1. May want to publish an agenda in future. Not wise to be fashionably late. Reports were that the event was in full swing at 6:30 PM and 6:45 arrival felt like we were catching up. 2. Would be wise to provide the wifi information so everyone could connect for the text fundraiser. Verizon worked but several people near me said that they could not connect using ATT. The wifi would allow everyone to connect See you next year!!

      A Magical Place

    The Copper Beech Institute offers a wide variety of courses, meditations, workshops and is housed on a beautiful peace of property. I enjoy the Wednesday Candlelight Meditation as a group or 30-40 of us meet to share this mindful experience and are led by the incredible Miranda who always gives a talk that seems to hit home. This place is filled with such love and kindness. Go check it out!

Thank you!

We're glad you've joined our retreat community. See you around :)

Why Retreat?

We asked people why they go on retreat, here's what they said:

To find peace and renewal while going through a huge change in my life. Empty nest and the end of a 27 year marriage all at once. Susan
