Prayer: Holy Conversations With God

Prayer: Holy Conversations With God Retreat
Jan., 23-26, 2012

This retreat offers an opportunity to set-aside time for exploration of the many ways to connect with God through a prayerful heart. Methods used will include, lectio divina with nature, the daily examen, imaginative prayer with Scripture, daily living in the presence of God, body awareness prayer, centering prayer and meditation.

The retreat also delves into the significance of places of prayer, using art-making to hear God, and how we image God. It will be a time not only to pray, but also to investigate questions about prayer.

In addition to group learning experiences, time will be set aside for worship, individual reflection, labyrinth walking and meditative reading and music. Participants will also have access to Skinner Chapel, Laskey Research Library and the beautiful Scarritt-Bennett campus.
