Contemplative Living Experience (CLE)


The CLE program is built on an established practice of Centering Prayer and provides the guidance and formation to move participants from having a contemplative practice to living a contemplative life.


Participants meet one weekend a month for nine months (September through May) on a Friday evening and all day Saturday at The Center. Community support and spiritual enrichment help participants integrate into daily life contemplative practices such as Lectio Divina, the Welcoming Prayer, Discernment, Forgiveness, and Contemplative Service.


A Centering Prayer practice and a commitment to attend all sessions are the only requirements to participate.

Application Process: The applications process is closed for the 2019-2020 program.  
    The program will be offered again starting in September 2021.
