Living Fully

Led by: Jill Benet

An exploration into the sacredness of our lives and the world we live in. Through the practice of the bodily experience of Lectio Divina, Centering Prayer and the appreciation of those parts of us that we so often reject, we can live the meaning of our lives more fully.

The week will include extended periods of Centering Prayer, Lectio Divina and an introduction to Inner Relationship Focusing. There will be periods of silence and time for reflection.

Experience of Centering Prayer or similar practice will be helpful.

Arrive in time for supper at 6pm on Sunday and depart late morning on Friday.


En-suite: £605

Standard: £555
