Hesed Community & St. Anthony’s Retreat Center & invite you to a retreat day of “Christian Meditation: Walking Wholeheartedly into Silence” on Saturday, August 10, 2019 from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm at St. Anthony’s Retreat Center at 3351 Kalihi St. in Honolulu. Registration will be from 9:15-9:55 am. and we plan to start promptly at 10:00 am, so please allow ample time to find the Retreat Center. Suggested contribution to attend is $15-$25 (lunch is included).

This day will include an introduction to Christian meditation; exploring an awareness of God and listening; lunch and a body movement session (walking meditation, tai chi, stretching or yoga, etc.) and meditation sessions.  We will create a contemplative environment so that we can step away from our responsibilities and obligations of everyday life and sit in the unconditional love of God. We will slow down; be quiet; unplug; reflect and take a break from “doing”.   We ask that you honor an atmosphere of silence, so that together we can create a contemplative community during our brief time together. If you have any questions about the day, please contact June Pangelinan at 510-685-7054 or
