Praying with our full humanity 

Led by: Nicola Mason

God created us human and chose in the incarnation to share our humanity, yet many of us seem to feel or act as if being the particular human we are – in all our unvarnished reality – hinders us from sharing in God’s life, or from being the holy people we long to be. We can be dogged by a sense that we need to improve and tempted to bring only selected parts of ourselves to prayer. 

This weekend, in company with saints and writers past and present, we will look at how we can learn to pray with all of our humanity, and discover that every part of ourselves and our experience is holy ground, and the place of our encounter with God.

Arrive in time for supper at 7pm on Friday and depart by 4pm on Sunday


En-suite: £230

Standard: £210
