Centering Prayer

Offered virtually. Please contact the Centre at 403-328-3422 or email admin@martharetreatcentre.ca for details on how to join our session. Centering Prayer is a 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.

Those who practice centering prayer are invited to the Centre weekly or virtually on Tuesdays 1:30—2:40 p.m. 

Facilitator: Pat Boehm

Cost: A free will offering is gratefully accepted via the Donate button on this website or by e-transfer to assistant@martharetreatcentre.ca.  Official Income Tax Receipts are available upon request.

Spiritual Direction

Practiced in many different spiritual traditions, spiritual direction is a way of listening to the movement of God or Spirit in our daily lives.  A spiritual companion is someone who creates a safe and compassionate listening space, and who is trained to listen without judgment, often intuiting the right questions to go deeper into the meaning of one's life in the context of Spirit, or a presence greater than ourselves.....A number of trained spiritual directors are affiliated with the Centre. Spiritual direction is purposely affordable and your first session is free. For more information and find bios  at: spiritualdirectorslethbridge.com

Labyrinth

A labyrinth has only one winding path to and from the centre. There are no dead ends or wrong turns. The path is a two-way street. You may pass people or step to the side to let others pass you. Breathe, centre yourself and quiet your mind. There are 3 stages to the walk:
• Releasing on the way in,
"letting go”
• Receiving in the centre, “pausing to reflect”
• Returning when you follow the path out “pondering and integrating your experience”

Walk the labyrinth on your own (unrestricted visits based on availability).
Groups are required to schedule visits.

A free will offering is gratefully accepted.
