Friday 23rd September 202216:00'Now that I'm free to be myself, who am I?' (Mary Oliver)
Friday 23rd - Sunday 25th September 2022 Cost: £175pp - Includes meals, refreshments and accommodation A creative space to reflect on the impact that change has on our lives. Change can mean very different things to different people at different times of our lives. It can hold threat or promise for us. This weekend is an opportunity to pause, take a deep breath and be still. We will engage with art, poetry, scripture, music, and times of silence, bringing our personal situation into the presence of God. There we can encounter the source of peace, love and hope. This retreat is likely to contain: Silence Arts and crafts Music Poetry Spiritual direction Personal development Retreat Leaders: Wendy & Andrew Rudd Andrew Rudd is passionate about finding wonder in the ordinary.
