A Lenten introduction to Contemplative Christian Spirituality for Seekers, Doubters, Rebels, and Ragamuffins. Together we will spend a day of prayer and silence exploring classic Christian practices such as: Celtic Daily Prayer, Centering Prayer, Prayer Walking, Chanting, Lectio Divina, and other disciplines. This is an ecumenical gathering of friends where all are welcome as they are, no one is excluded for any reason. This will be a silent retreat with dedicated times for discussion and sharing.
We will practice at the Chicot State Park Meeting Room on the secluded east side of Bayou Chicot Lake with meal provided and opportunities for afternoon hiking and evening campfire to close out the day. You are welcome to leave earlier in the day if needed.
