Eight-Day Centering Prayer Retreat

This retreat is an opportunity for practitioners of Centering Prayer to deepen their contemplative journey in the contemporary world. It is a week long experience of integrating contemplation and action through silence, solitude and community.

The retreat offers two tracks. The intensive track is recommended for people who have completed the introductory workshop and who have a regular practice of Centering Prayer. The post-intensive track is for those people who have previously made an eight-day intensive retreat. The post-intensive offers increased silence and additional periods of Centering Prayer. Both the intensive and post-intensive Centering Prayer retreat provide daily experiences of silence, solitude, walking, hiking, yoga, and spiritual companionship to foster an ever-deepening level of interior silence and awareness of the presence of God in everyday life.

The Rev. Gordon Peerman, DMin, is an Episcopal priest and leader of One River Wisdom School Nashville, a mindfulness meditation group. He has been engaged with contemplative practices, including Centering Prayer, mindfulness meditation, yoga, and chi gong since 1975. He has taught Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction at Vanderbilt and St. Thomas Health Services, as well as classes in Buddhist Christian Dialogue at Vanderbilt Divinity School.  He is the author of Blessed Relief: What Christians Can Learn from Buddhists about Suffering.  He lives in Nashville.
