Breathing Spaces

25–27 November 2022 (Fri–Sun)

A silent retreat is a good opportunity to press the pause button in the hustle and bustle of daily life and to reflect on changing circumstances in our lives. Above all else it affords the opportunity to get in touch with God. There is a gentle way into silence, with conversation during the first meal, a briefing and time to meet fellow retreatants.

Then we go into silence – except for the 3 or 4 times during the retreat when each retreatant meets up with the member of the team who is accompanying them. The team member is there to listen, to help make sense of what might emerge in the silence, and to offer resources to assist retreatants in their spiritual journey e.g. scripture passages, poems, pictures and meditations. The whole retreat is surrounded by love, care and prayer in peaceful surroundings and concludes with a shared communion celebration.
