Women’s Spirituality Week 10th – 16th August 2024

Together we will investigate a different perspective on women’s spirituality, finding inspiration from some of the women in the Bible, and how their stories speak to us now.

We will examine the remarkable hidden life of Mary Magdalene – her struggle, sorrow and triumph – and all she has to offer modern faith in terms of presence, recognition and equality.

We will honour Mary as a surprisingly contemporary figure, a prism through which we can examine the way we relate to ourselves, each other and the divine.

This week will combine workshops, Shibashi and positive exercises for inward reflection. Spend a week in community, in art, in nature, finding a slow life on our inner healing journey.

The week is open to people of all genders and will be facilitated by Evie Nieboer, a former Deputy Cook at Iona Abbey, and a member of the Iona Community Young Adults’ Group.
