Formational Prayer

Thursday, September 26 - Saturday, September 28, 2019

8 am-5 pm each day


This seminar is designed as the beginning of a journey with God in formational  prayer. Each day will include teaching, video clips, personal time with God and processing in small groups. It is open to anyone interested in finding wholeness in God. No matter where you are in your healing, this seminar is designed to position you for the next step in receiving God's healing and transformation. 

Kavanna House believes that one of the best gifts you can give yourself and others is to begin and to continue your own healing journey. Experiencing our own personal healing moves us deeper into wholeness which impacts not only our own lives but those around us. 


 "The Formational Prayer Seminar led me to the blistering desert, then supplied the balm that soothed and nourished my soul. The facilitators do an excellent job creating a safe community where healing can take place; all in the  midst of the peaceful surroundings at Kavanna House. My personal experience with the seminar was not only a life changer, but a literal name changer." ~ Past Participant

Participation in The Formational Prayer Seminar at Kavanna House sets the ground work as the foundational introduction to formational prayer at Kavanna House. It is a life changing experience for many where much transformation happens in only three days. Yet, we remind our participants that healing is a journey, not a destination. To support the continuation of healing for those who have experienced the seminar, and to build upon their base understanding and experience of formational prayer, we offer them an invitation to be a part of the Formational Prayer Cohort.


Over the course of eight months, the cohort will meet for five two-day retreat weekends, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. The components of this cohort will include time for teaching, self-reflection, group processing, and experiential activities, all of which support and position participants for deeper healing in the presence of God.


While in a safe and intimate group of spiritual peers, this intense cohort dynamic will most likely unearth some painful memories and past experiences. Encountering God in the midst of those memories and experiences can heal the heart and renew individual spirits and minds. Just as witnessed in the Seminar, life stories will be sacredly and non-judgmentally carried with qualified care-givers by your side. Kavanna House encourages past Formational Prayer Seminar and weekly Formational Prayer class participants to prayerfully consider this as the next step in discovering freedom from the broken places in their souls.
