Often, the power of story helps us integrate and understand our own journey. Deep Listening is a one-person play exploring the subjects of loss and grief. The power of these stories help us to explore our own grief and loss as we traverse the unexpected, especially in our experience of COVID-19.

Centering Prayer:
Healing and Transformation on the Contemplative Path

November 13-15, 2020


When we take our first loving step towards God on the contemplative path we may or may not realize that we are crossing a threshold into a new transformative way of living – one which requires us to let go of our illusions about ourselves and in humility embrace the truth of who we are, an identity yet to be discovered.

Please join us for a weekend – with God, and with a praying community– to deepen our consent to this transformation.

Grief and loss can take many forms. This year has brought many challenges.

This workshop is designed to help you listen closely to your heart in order to find healing and peace.

Bestselling author David Richo gets to the heart of how to find courage and contentment when life doesn’t go according to plan. Rather than fighting against them, we all must accept these five true things: (1) everything changes and ends, (2) things do not always go according to plan, (3) life is not always fair, (4) pain is part of life, and (5) people are not loving and loyal all the time. Drawing on both psychology and spirituality, Richo offers time-tested insights on finding meaning and joy in life as it really is and relationships as they are.

See Five True Things and more of David’s books in the Mercy Center online bookstore.

As we enter the season of Advent we learn from Mary, to make room for the holy to blossom within us. On this quiet prayer morning we will gather for two sessions of Centering Prayer, sacred readings, a video “Mary, Mother of God” by Thomas Keating, and time for community sharing.

December 11, 2020

Free Will Offering

Our Advent morning of prayer will begin as always with the story of the Annunciation, Angel Gabriel’s appearance to Mary and God’s invitation to her to become the mother of Jesus. As we ponder her “yes,” we will also listen for the “yeses” that we might be invited to say in our lives. As Meister Eckhart says, “We are all called to be mothers of God.”
