The Work of Silence

Led by: Jill Benet

 What do we mean by being in Silence? Is this something we believe we have to do? Or is it something that is a gift to be received? Join a small community for a weekend, with the invitation to abide in the intimacy of Silence. There will be extended periods of Centering Prayer, Lectio Divina, time for reflection and rest.

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


En-suite: £230

Standard: £210
