Villa Maria Education and Spirituality Center

2067 Evergreen St., Villa Maria, PA 16155

Join fellow practitioners for immersion in the practice of Centering Prayer, as taught by Contemplative Outreach. Two retreats are available during the week, based on your background:

Centering Prayer Intensive Retreat: The Intensive Retreat features an educational component, plus up to three hours of Centering Prayer and two videos from the “Spiritual Journey” video series each day. Throughout the retreat experience, one becomes more immersed in the conceptual background of the spiritual practice, as well as refinement in the practice itself.

Recommended preparation: established daily practice of Centering Prayer for at least six months to one year.

Centering Prayer Post Intensive Retreat: The Post Intensive Retreat provides an opportunity for even more intensive Centering Prayer, solitude, and silence in community. The Post Intensive is predominantly silent, with no videos shown.

Recommended preparation: previous attendance at an Intensive Retreat or equivalent.

Both retreats will be held simultaneously at Villa Maria Education and Spirituality Center (, located in Western Pennsylvania on the picturesque grounds of Villa Maria Community Center, home of the Sisters of the Humility of Mary.
