Seeing as a child – Spirituality of Storytelling

Led by: Anne Booth

Jesus tells us to be like children, but what does this mean? Anne Booth, author of books for both children and adults, explores how story telling can help us in our own spiritual journey, and how looking at our life’s narrative through a child’s eyes can help us draw closer to Jesus, the teller of parables. This day will use stories as a jumping off place for meditation and prayer. 

Starts at 10am and finishes at 4pm. Please bring a packed lunch.

Cost: £30 

Overnight stay (B&B – Fri – Sat) + day retreat: £85

Anne is a married mum of four, with an MA in Children’s Literature and another in Creative Writing and a postgraduate diploma in Pastoral Theology from Heythrop College.
