2022 Retreats

Saturday August 6th
Saturday October 15th

 

Saturday June 18th

You are welcome to come for the whole day, or just the morning/afternoon.

Please come along and treat this retreat as a traditional quiet day, or if you are interested, join in one of the devotional practices “workshops” that will be available during each session. While lots of past participants are comfortable coming to a day with no organised program, others have expressed how much they like the opportunity to try out different Christian devotional practices. So this retreat day has been titled “Pick and Mix” for a reason, options available will include (planned at this stage):

  • Journaling (both traditional with words and visual journaling with art)
  • Martin Luther’s method of prayerfully approaching Scripture using the four-stranded garland prayer
  • Bible verse mapping
  • Physical movement and prayer
  • Visio Divina – prayerfully reflecting on an image (we will be using a painting based on a scene from the gospel of Luke)
  • Nature reflections, perhaps a prayer walk outside

In each session, the practice will be introduced, and then there will be an opportunity to “practice” with a simple exercise. There is no obligation to participate in any of the sessions, they will simply be available for whoever is interested.

Of course, the music room, chapel and “stations” around the property will all be set up as areas for reflection. If it is cold, fires will be blazing both indoors and out!
