The Priority of Being: A Retreat for Deepening Practice
AboutTeachers of contemplation insist that prayer is not just something we do: it’s a habit of being, a state of awareness, a climate of rest and joy. Prayer is not something to master but an opening into reconciling presence. Over five days, this silent meditation retreat led by Sarah Bachelard will focus on fundamental elements of contemplative practice – stillness, silence, simplicity, presence – and the invitation to open ever more whole-heartedly to the gift. It will speak to experienced meditators and beginners. All are welcome.
Rev. Dr Sarah Bachelard is a theologian, retreat leader and founder of Benedictus Contemplative Church. She is a teacher with the World Community for Christian Meditation and a Circle of Trust facilitator. Sarah loves to discern connections between the wisdom of tradition, contemplative practice and lived experience.
