4The Spanish CornerBy Ilse ReissnerSome exciting news that we would like to share with you is –As announced previously, Extensión Contemplativa has two fundraising events coming upin the near future: two contemplative pilgrimages (our pilgrimages are quite different from any othertour you may have been part of, and those that have joined us in the past know this very well!) Thefirst will be a very intense 13 days in the Holy Land, visiting as many significant places in the life of Jesusas possible and ending with a half-day retreat. It is mostly intended for those of you that understandSpanish, as both our guide and our priest will be Spanish-speaking. Date: It was originally plannedfor May, but now postponed until November 3rd. Our airline will be ALITALIA, giving us a chanceto offer a post-extension of four days in Italy, visiting Rome and Assisi. Cost: $2,402 for the basicpart (from Miami or New York) and $643 for the Italy extension. (Air/land, hotels, breakfast,dinner and all expenses are included, except airport taxes, tips, and visas.)The second 11 or 18-day contemplative pilgrimage will depart on April 26, 2002, and willfollow the footprints of Peter and Paul. Our guide will be our old-time friend Samir, who has beenwith us in the past, and our spiritual director, Fr. William Meninger, who spent three years in this areaas a Biblical scholar. We will spend one week in Israel, focusing and reliving events in the lives of Peterand Jesus, fly to Athens/Thessaloniki in Greece to join those not going to Israel, and, for six days followPaul’s steps in Greece in our comfortable motorcoach, and then embark for a three-day cruise tovisit the Greek islands and Ephesus in Turkey. Cost: for Greece only, $2,675, for Israel andGreece, $3,795 from New York on Olympic Airways. (Air/land, hotels, shore excursions,breakfast, dinner, and all expenses included except airport taxes, tips and visas.)If you are interested, please contact us at (407) 767-7567, or Fax (407) 767-6414 and we’llsend you a brochure.Growth - When our Board met in January, we decided that each one of our memberswould be serving the needs of those places where a Spanish-speaking representative ofContemplative Outreach is required. Adalberto Henriquez will travel to El Salvador andNicaragua in Central America, and two local people will be his support contacts. A visit toArgentina in April is being planned by Dr. Hugo Mejía or Ricardo López, again with two localpeople serving as their support contacts (one of them is moving from Miami to Argentina, whereshe is originally from, and the other participated in our Formation Program in July in Orlando).Isabel de Marion-Landais was in Puerto Rico for a weekend workshop on Lectio Divina, willreturn within the next couple of months; and, due to geographical location, will be following upwith Carmen Sánchez. A visit to Venezuela is being planned next. Meanwhile, Carmen Sánchezis going to offer our first seven-day retreat in Spanish in Miami on October 18th to 24 th (costis $400, phone number to call for registration is (305) 661-6966, Fax (305) 666-2075). And,another Formation for Service is being planned for next year.Our second bi-annual international meeting will be held in Orlando the weekendof July 20 - 22. We ask our readers who feel they can make a contribution to the Spanish nationaland international effort to let us know if they would like to attend, as the space is very limitedat the San Pedro Retreat Center. We would also like to have your ideas and suggestions forthis meeting. Donations for Extensión Contemplativa can be sent to Contemplative Outreach,indicating on your check that your donation be used for the Spanish Ministry. Thank you…Adiós, amigos – hasta la próxima – que Dios los bendiga a todos…!A Moment With the LordBy Joanne O’Rourke, NYCI asked the Lord for favorsAnd thought he never heard,His message was be silentAnd say your sacred word.I asked he give me knowledgeSo I could better pray,You learn my will by being stillWas what he seemed to say.I asked him for the gift of faithSo I could spread his word,He said, be free, just trust in MeFor I’ll decide who’s heard.I beckoned then for wisdomSo I could change the lands,He did request I learn to restAnd leave things in His hands.I told him from his gentlenessMy spirit would renew,He said let go and let Me growFor I created you.There’s a spirit deep within youIn my likeness which is true,With all life’s pain, it’s now turned feignIt’s time to make it new.If you won’t sit in silenceYou’ll never hear my voice,You only know one way to goAnd you always make the choice.And so I rest in silenceWondering if I’m heard,The thoughts do flow, I let them goAnd say my sacred word.Connect on the Web!Visit our web site at http://www.contemplativeoutreach.org for:• Weekly articles by Fr.

In addition tothe Spiritual Journey Series, our curriculum includes a “False SelfFilm Festival”, workshops on the Welcoming Practice and Prayerof Forgiveness, and a Centering Prayer immersion experience.

Sr. Bernadette Teasdale, (303) 698-7729.Long Island/Queens, NYIn response to the question, “What are we doing next year?” fromparticipants at the closing of The Living Flame II Program, grew ourEnrichment Program – a series of four monthly presentationsincluding the Welcoming Prayer, Lectio Divina, the ForgivenessPrayer and the Power of Silence. Introductory Workshops arescheduled in Suffolk County, a newly developing Centering Prayerarea for Long Island.

Long Island Steering CommitteeBarbara Sullivan (516) 481-0472.Northwest (Contemplative Outreach Northwest)The relationship with God keeps stimulating Contemplative OutreachNorthwest to stretch ourselves with more workshops andmore kinds of workshops by our presenters (16 between Januaryand July) more people (1200) receiving the newsletter, and morepeople visiting our website (www.conw.org). Cynthia Bourgeaultwill give a five-day workshop in Seattle in July, and Bill Sheehan andSusan Komis are coming to give weekend or longer workshopsthis year. We have 30 Centering Prayer groups. Many share thework, giving the coordinator time to volunteer to MonroePenitentiary, co-teach a workshop for the assistants at the L’Archecommunity here, co-present Centering Prayer to clergy and laypeople at an organized Annual Ministry Resource Day in March,and give an 11 th Step workshop at a national 12-Step conventionin June. Thus the prayer feeds our lives. Barbara Huston (206)282-9076.Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, NC (ContemplativeOutreach of the Triangle)We are officially Contemplative Outreach of the Triangle, butoutside of our neighboring states, we are probably better knowngeographically by the three cities above. However you know us,we are experiencing wonderful growth in Centering Prayer. OurCore Team of Flo Hartye, Betty Stoddard, John Kelsey and I meetthe first Saturday of every month for administrative and planningpurposes. We have been doing that for over a year.

Theyrepresent Episcopal, Presbyterian, United Church of Christ, RomanCatholic (plus Newman Center), and Lutheran faith traditions.We are all greatly looking forward to Fr.

9UpdatesTampa, FLGreetings from the Tampa Bay area! There has been a lotof resistance to writing a paragraph for the newsletter inthe past because of the assumption only those areas doing“great and wonderful” things would be of interest until thisthought came: There must be many other areas whereprogress is being made slowly in this great work with whichwe are charged. And so, the resistance was overcome inorder to encourage smaller groups. Thus, we are writingto let readers know our area is growing steadily and slowly.The number of prayer groups has grown to 10 over the lastseveral years. In addition to four or five IntroductoryWorkshops yearly, we sponsor the United in Prayer Dayeach March, and, for the first time, will have two sites – onein Crystal River and one in St. Petersburg. In the Fall weadded an “Uncovering Your Hidden Motivation” workshop,and in the last two winters, offered the “WelcomingPrayer Workshop”. Another highlight was a weekendretreat on Centering Prayer and Enneagram presented byFr. Bill Sheehan and Jean Jolly of Tampa. While in the area,Fr. Bill presented an evening for the community at large onLectio Divina that enriched us greatly. We seem to addevents as the needs arise. With both of us retired as of thesummer of 2000, it seems the pace is picking up a little…moreIntroductory Workshops, more events at which to presentthe Centering Prayer concept. Other leaders seem to beemerging, and that gives us hope for even more to beaccomplished as we slowly move forward – hopefully,always under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. John &Marge Rafftery, Co-Coordinators 727-345-7908.Walden, NY (Contemplative Outreach of OrangeCounty)In June St. Andrew’s Retreat House will be hosting the first21-Day Centering Prayer Immersion Retreat with Fr.Thomas Keating, Fr. Carl Arico and David Frenette. Theresponse from the last Newsletter was so overwhelmingthat we added one January 12-Feb 1 and June 1-21, 2002.We are presenting three One-Day Introductory Workshopsper Quarter, and now need to begin focusing onDays of Prayer, supporting Centering Prayer Groups andother one-day Workshops. The “Living the WelcomingPrayer in Daily Life” with David Frenette was incredible,and we have scheduled another this December. A newContemplative Living Community formed from the lastNine-Month Course and is meeting monthly at the Butler,NJ office. We tithe 2.5% of our gross income each monthto the Int’l Office, and have made our pledge for the nextfive years. We continue to be in awe of God’s greatgoodness and generosity in our ministry at St. Andrew’sand are especially grateful to Contemplative Outreach fortheir continued support.

Contemplative Outreach NewsA SEMI-ANNUAL NEWSLETTER FOR THE GROWING CONTEMPLATIVE OUTREACH COMMUNITY WORLD-WIDE.Contemplative Outreach Vision StatementContemplative Outreach is a spiritual network of individuals andsmall faith communities committed to living the contemplativedimension of the Gospel in everyday life through the practice ofCentering Prayer. The contemplative dimension of the Gospelmanifests itself in an ever-deepening union with the living Christand the practical caring for others that flows from that relationship.Our purpose is to share the method of Centering Prayer and itsimmediate conceptual background. We also encourage the practiceof Lectio Divina, particularly its movement into ContemplativePrayer, which a regular and established practice of CenteringPrayer facilitates.We identify with the Christian Contemplative Heritage. While we areformed by our respective denominations, we are united in ourcommon search for God and the experience of the living Christthrough Centering Prayer. We affirm our solidarity with the contemplativedimension of other religions and sacred traditions, with theneeds and rights of the whole human family, and with all creation.Networking, Resources, and WorkshopPresenters are available at theContemplative Outreach InternationalOffice.
