Centering Prayer

Centering Prayer

Centering Prayer is a receptive method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, prayer in which we experience God's presence within us, closer than breathing, closer than thinking, closer than consciousness itself. This method of prayer is both a relationship with God and a discipline to foster that relationship.

Women's Getaway

Do you feel like you can’t find a moment of quiet? A moment of peace beyond waiting for the coffee to brew or the tea to steep?

The annual women’s getaway is located at Valle Crucis Conference Center overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. You can sit on the porch in a rocking chair for as long as you like, find a hiking trail, or explore local shops. This weekend is designed for rest. For peace. For the quiet moment that seems so elusive in our day-to-day lives.
