COCFL Fall Retreat with Julie Saad, October 28-30, 2022

COCFL Fall Retreat, October 28-30, 2022
with Julie Saad

Canterbury Conference Center
1601 Alafaya Trail, Oviedo, FL 32765

Attend in person or remotely by Zoom

In this retreat we will be taking a deeper dive into Thomas Keating’s teaching about the transformation we experience with a regular practice of Centering Prayer, in other words, the fruits of Centering Prayer. Topics will include the unloading of the unconscious, our basic core of goodness, dismantling the emotional programs for happiness, restructuring of consciousness, the transforming union, and interior silence.

In addition to our time together in Centering Prayer, we will experience some practical contemplative prayer practices that will help us to recognize and consent to God’s transforming action in our lives.

“Transformation is about becoming who you are—not your idea

of who you are, but God’s idea of who you are. Consenting to be

transformed does not mean that life is somehow all of a sudden,

easy, but we start to realize that we are not alone in this project

and may even start to experience the peace that comes from

interior silence.”
