On March 20-23, Nick Cole will present a three-night retreat, "Centering Prayer Meets the 11th Step," at St. Scholastica Retreat Center, 1205 S. Albert Pike, Fort Smith. This retreat will be for persons who want to learn about and/or deepen their practice of centering prayer. There will be opportunities for those in 12-step programs to learn how to use centering prayer in the 11th step: Seeking through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of God’s will for us and the power to carry that out. "Centering Prayer and Inner Awakening" by Cynthia Bouregault and "Breathing Under Water" by Richard Rohr will be helpful (but not required) reading before the retreat. The cost of this retreat is $235.00, with a $50.00 non-refundable deposit due at the time of registration. Lodging and 9 meals are included in the price. Registration before March 6 can be accepted over the phone at 479-783-1135 or online at www.stscho.org/retreat-registration.
