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:
Two groups in Carson City on Monday evenings and Wednesday mornings
Three groups in Reno on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons and every other Friday evening
A group in Gardnerville on Tuesday evenings
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.
