Holiday Enrichment Retreat


The holiday season is a special time in the flow of our year. Do you fall into the rush of the holidays and wish you could stay centered? Do you have an intention for this upcoming season?


Come spend a day in quiet, prayer and reflection as we move into this season of gratitude, incarnation and new beginnings. There will be time and space for creating intentionality for the season, understanding how we are taken away from our intentions and the application of the contemplative practice of the active prayer.

When:   Saturday, November 19  
    9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.  
 Cost:   $30  

You can register online

The Cloud of Unknowing


The Cloud of Unknowing offers unique guidance for anyone who desires intimate contact with God.


In these conferences, you will explore the sources of what has come to be known as “centering prayer.” You will discover its roots in the Desert Fathers and Mothers, emergent contemplatives who labored to “put on the mind and heart of Christ.” You will trace the unfolding of the sacred science of spiritual transformation through its earliest pioneers to its ongoing development in our day. In learning the practice of “dark” contemplation, you will come to sense the ineffable mystery and hiddenness.



Presented by gifted professor, author, and psalmist, Sr. Kathleen Deignan, C.N.D., these six conferences will deepen your spirituality. You will discover the teachings of one of the great classics of the Christian tradition, which has profoundly influenced classical and contemporary spirituality.


$80 (includes the book, The Cloud of Unknowing by William Johnston)

When:   Six Thursdays, January 19 - February 23  
    6:30 - 9:00 p.m.  
RSVP:   Wednesday,, January 18

Sacred Heart      

Spring Weekend Intensive Retreat

April 20 - 23 (Thursday - Sunday)


Spring is a time for renewal and a contemplative retreat is a great way of renewing mind, body, and spirit while deepening your Centering Prayer practice.


If the circumstances of your life preclude participation in the 10-day retreat offerings at Snowmass, our 4-day weekend intensive may present an ideal opportunity to experience the grace of silence in the beauty of God's creation.


At the request of our retreatants, we have added another day to the weekend by beginning the retreat with dinner on Thursday evening. A weekend intensive retreat includes periods of Centering Prayer, Lectio Divina, and time for solitude. Retreats are open to those who have incorporated a Centering Prayer practice into their daily lives for at least six months.


The Sacred Heart Jesuit Retreat House is located in the colorful foothills and offers panoramic views of the Rocky Mountains. The beautiful grounds offer the perfect setting for solitude, reflection, and prayer. There are plentiful trails for walking, hiking and enjoying nature.

 Cost:   $340  
    A non-refundable deposit of $80 is due with registration  
    The full amount is due by April 5  

You can register ONLINE


Or, you can print the REGISTRATION FORM and mail it, along with your payment, to the Center.


You can also call the Center at 303-698-7729.
