Join us for a weekend Centering Prayer retreat in late March 2023 in Cedar Mountain, only 12 miles from downtown Brevard. The location is the Sassy Goose, a beautiful and secluded retreat property close to DuPont Recreational Forest. The Sassy Goose features comfortable accommodations surrounded by acres of undeveloped forest, with walking trails and a lovely lake.

The retreat will begin Friday, March 24 at 4:00 p.m. and conclude Monday, March 27 in the morning. In between will be multiple periods of Centering Prayer, group discussions, and related spiritual practices, accompanied by simple, nutritious meals. The retreat will alternate between periods of silence and contemplative conversation. The remaining space is for a double-occupancy room at $799 for 2 registrants, suitable for a couple, 2 good friends willing to share a king-sized bed, or an individual. All registrations include a private bathroom and all meals. (We’ve started a waiting list for those interested in a single-occupancy registration at $479 per person.)
