Drawing on the Quaker tradition of Advices and Queries we will use the creative expressions of others and our own responses to consider the question “Is the life I am living the same as the life that wants to live in me?” (Parker. J. Palmer Let Your Life Speak, 2000).
The retreat will offer a series of guided exercises, often working in pairs or small groups, and with plenty of time for quiet reflection and relaxation. Participants will be invited to use a journal during the retreat, and to get creative if they wish, using simple art materials and the natural environment. (Participants are asked to bring with them an object which has meaning and significance to them and be prepared to speak briefly about it to the group.)
Rooms available from 3pm on Thursday
