We often tend to slight serious meditation and prayer as something not really necessary. To be sure, we feel it it something that might help us to meet an occasional emergency, but at first many of us are apt to regard it as a somewhat mysterious skill of clergymen, from which we may hope to get a secondhand benefit.

The Contemplative Dimension of the Twelve Steps: A Centering Prayer
as an Eleventh Step Retreat
With Adina Meyer and Gordon Coffey

We will spend time sitting together, reflecting on Father Keating’s teachings, and taking meditative walks through the beautiful Priory grounds, seeking to improve our conscious contact with God as we understand God.
This retreat will be led by two commissioned presenters of Centering Prayer as the Eleventh Step who are also longtime practitioners themselves, Gordon Coffey and Adina Meyer. The cost is 400 dollars per person, which includes all meals, coffee and tea.
