INTRODUCTORY WORKSHOP PRESENTER FORMATION RETREAT AUGUST 17-19, 2018
HOLY NAME MONASTERY ST. LEO, FLORIDA Facilitated by Stephen and Christine Hoffman
One significant way that the gift of Centering Prayer has been taught and communicated is through Introductory Workshops. Over the years, this Introductory Workshop has continued to be shaped and given personal guidance from Fr. Thomas Keating and administered through Contemplative Outreach, Ltd. Once a daily practice of Centering Prayer has become a part of one's daily life, going through the formation process to become a Commissioned Presenter offers a way to deepen one's personal practice and share it with others in a variety of settings.
Stephen and Christine Hoffman, Commissioned Presenters, are offering a local formation opportunity under the mentorship of a member of Contemplative Outreach's service team. This formation process has been shaped so that it is as accessible as possible, and provides an opportunity for one's experience of God's love to be deepened. It is offered in a spirit of love and gratitude for all that has been shared with us.
The Presenter Formation will be conducted in an atmosphere of prayer at Holy Name Monastery in St Leo, Florida, in their recently completed retreat center. It will begin on Friday, 17 August 2018 at 11:00 AM concluding no later than 3:30 PM on Sunday 19 August. Space is limited so early registration is strongly advised. There will be a waiting list.
