Centering Prayer Contemplative Retreats are held in different retreat houses in the area and last from a weekend to 10+ days. They consist of 3-4 hours of group Centering Prayer sessions with 20-30 minute sits at a time. Each retreat consists of either grand silence, i.e. no talking or eye contact, or no talking except after dinner with spiritual readings during meals. The retreats are led by experienced commissioned presenters from Contemplative Network.

Houston Centering Prayer Weekend Retreats
Centering Prayer is for anyone serious about becoming freer to realize and fulfill the call summed up on these words: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, all your strength, and all your mind, and love your neighbor as yourself.” (Matthew 22:37) Centering Prayer is a very simple way of prayer which can be used by anyone who wants to be with God, and experience God’s love and presence.
