Wisdom from the Desert

This event has ended

Led by Audrey Hamilton

‘I will lure her into the desert and speak to her heart.’ (Hosea 2:16)

Join us for a day ‘in the wilderness’ as we explore what the wisdom of desert spirituality can say to us today.  We shall draw on the treasures of some of the Desert Fathers and Mothers and learn how a rhythm of silence and prayer can be woven into the pattern of even the busiest life.

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

Cost: £30

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