Deepening Trust

This event has ended

Led by Jill Benet

“For one should direct the eye to this inner work and work out of it, be it reading, praying or – if it comes up – outer work.”

Meister Eckhart, Speeches of instruction. Tract 23.

A weekend of silence and solitude where we shall form a small community and sit together in extended periods of Centering Prayer to consider the meaning of ‘inner work’ and deepen our trust in the Divine Indwelling that sustains us at all times. This weekend is suitable for those wishing to establish or have a regular practice of Centering Prayer. There will be some teaching, and extended periods of prayer and silence. 

Arrive in time for supper at 7pm on Friday and depart by 3pm on Sunday.

Standard: £210
