“The closer one approaches to God, the simpler one becomes” (St. Teresa of Avila).
Contemplative prayer is the opening of mind and heart—our whole being—to God, the Ultimate Mystery, beyond thoughts, words, and emotions. This retreat, involving breath practice, is for beginners on the contemplative way, as well as for those who have some experience with it. Please bring loose fitting clothing of neutral colors.
