Meditation Chapel

Pray in silence with practitioners from all over the world. Centering Prayer groups are forming on this global video platform of online meditation groups.

It's difficult to describe how profoundly connecting, expansive and intimate it is to see, hear and join in silent prayer with others from all over the world.

You just have to try it.


To join the groups, follow these steps:

To get started Click here and follow the steps to register on the site.


You will receive an email with a link to the meditation chapel the group meets in. Once you receive a link to a chapel (i.e., to Peace Chapel or to John Main Chapel), it’s always the same link. Save it for future use.


About 5-10 minutes before the group starts, click on the link to enter the chapel.


Using a device with a larger screen and video camera is recommended for the best experience (laptop, desktop, tablet).

It's easy! Facilitators will introduce you to the group and help you with any questions.Please share this information with your communities.


If you have any questions, or are interested in being trained as a facilitator for this platform, please email Pamela Begemanat This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .


All retreats are held at St. Benedict's Monastery Retreat House located in Snowmass, CO unless otherwise noted.


We encourage you to consider being on a waitlist for any of the retreats, since we reguarly have cancellations.
