Contemplative Outreach Northern Nevada
5-DAY SILENT RETREAT
GALILEE EPISCOPAL CAMP AND RETREAT CENTER
SUNDAY TO FRIDAY
APRIL 16 - 21, 2023
According to Father Thomas Keating, it is suggested that an annual retreat
will help grow our faith. The setting of this silent retreat takes place on the
banks of Lake Tahoe, where we celebrate a contemplative community
grounded in silence through several periods of Centering Prayer daily.
There is time for rest, reflection, and home cooked meals, while being in
touch and surrounded with the beauty of the pines and Lake Tahoe.
The total cost for the retreat is $575.00. A $100.00 non-refundable
registration fee is due no later than March 6, 2023. The final payment is due March 16, 2023.
Please contact Cathy Wayne at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be sent a registration form with further instructions.
We look forward to seeing you on this contemplative journey of the soul!
Blessings from your retreat team,
Dennis, Patty, Amy, and Carol.

Days of Reflection, Retreats
We hold several introductory workshops and days of reflection each year. During Lent we meet at Lake Tahoe for a three-day silent retreat.
This is a group focused on the contemplative dimension of life and Centering Prayer.
We welcome you to community if you have attended an introductory workshop on Centering Prayer or if you are visiting the northern Nevada area and have an established Centering Prayer practice. We hold several introductory workshops each year.
Centering Prayer follows Jesus's teaching (Matthew 6:6): "If you want to pray, enter your inner room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you." Centering Prayer is resting in God.
Centering Prayer is a receptive method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer.
We have several prayer groups that meet weekly in northern Nevada:
A group in Carson City on Wednesday mornings
Two groups in Reno on Mondays and Thursdays
A group in Gardnerville on Tuesday afternoons

These are links that will help you on your spiritual journey and the practice of Centering Prayer.
The fundamental goodness of human nature, like the mystery of the Trinity, Grace, and the Incarnation, is an essential element of Christian faith.
Our basic core of goodness is our true Self. Its center of gravity is God.
These are Scripture passages that allude to the practice of Centering Prayer.
