VISIONING DAY WITH SUSAN RUSH
RE-ENERGIZE THE CHAPTER
to be rescheduled later
Canterbury Retreat Center, 1601 Alafaya Trl, Oviedo, FL 32765
What is a Visioning Day?
The “Visioning Day” provides an opportunity for all Centering Prayer practitioners in our community to gather together to celebrate our history, assess our needs as a contemplative community, and “envision” future growth and direction for Contemplative Outreach of Central Florida (COCFL) post pandemic.
All participants will have an opportunity to offer input through small group and large group discussion and be a part of future planning as we envision our future as a contemplative community.
Dan Wagner and Jesse Fox have served as COCFL Co-Coordinators for the past four years including a one-year pandemic extension. We will be gathering for prayer and guidance of the Spirit in selecting a new coordinator for the next three years. Susan Rush will guide us through this leadership discernment.
Who should come?
All practitioners of Centering Prayer in Central Florida are encouraged to participate in loving service. This is a great opportunity to gather with people from all over our chapter and pray together as we plan for our future. There will be two periods of centering prayer during the day.
Registration includes a light breakfast and lunch. A donation is requested to offset these costs, the rental of the facility for the day and Susan’s travel.
This is an in person event but participation through Zoom is available for those who are hindered by distance or health concerns.
Susan Rush has been active in the Contemplative Outreach community for three decades. She has served
in the field of health care throughout her adult life. Her background is in Clinical Pastoral Education, formation for contemplative leadership and she is a certified spiritual director. Susan has served on many hospices and palliative care teams. Susan served as the founding coordinator of Contemplative Outreach of New Mexico and has served in other areas in CO, Ltd. Susan states that her connection with the CO community is her key to remaining resilient in our “wobbly” world. Compassionate presence with a contemplative heart is her goal. She resides in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
This chapter renewal will be held from 9:00AM to 3:30PM. It includes a light breakfast and lunch. Your donations will help offset the cost of the food, facilities and Susan’s travel: We suggest $20.00 for those attending in person and $10.00 for those attending on Zoom.
