Praying with the Eyes & Ears of our Heart

Praying with the Eyes & Ears of our Heart

A Lectio Divina Retreat

 Facilitator: Elizabeth Graboski

September 7-10, 2022


The focus of the retreat will be a Lectio Divina Introductory Workshop based on Fr. Thomas Keating’s teachings of the Four Senses of Scripture. The experience of praying with Holy Scripture will be supported by Centering Prayer periods with ample time for personal reflection and/or exploring the many trails on the partially wooded 140 acres in the hills of Pennsylvania.

Lectio Divina reveals the four senses of Scripture-the literal, the allegorical, the moral/behavioral and the unitive in a Spirit-led, transformative experience of relationship with the Divine. Come and let the Spirit speak to your heart as you “hear” scripture revealed through this ancient monastic prayer form.



Elizabeth Graboski, is a longtime contemplative prayer practitioner, a Centering Prayer facilitator and commissioned presenter of Centering Prayer and Lectio Divina for Contemplative Outreach. She currently serves with Contemplative Outreach Central Pennsylvania local chapter for the Spiritual Enrichment and Formation for Facilitators of Centering Prayer Groups.
