This past weekend more than 100 attendees gathered at The Portico for the Seeking Stillness retreat to learn the practice of Christian meditation. Retreat leader, Carl McColman, helped us discover the history of contemplative practice in the church and how silence brings us closer to God on a deep, personal level. We practiced a variety of meditation methods, including a beautiful sunrise walking meditation along the Downtown Tampa Riverwalk and a powerful Taize session with Shelley Tworoger. Thank you to all who attended and made this retreat such a special experience that has touched our congregation and the community.
The Portico offers ways to get involved with yoga and meditation every week. Click here for more information on how you can continue to seek stillness.
