April – July 2015: retreat in everyday life

The World is our Cloister: a three-month retreat in everyday life, with Annique Seddon.

 This retreat involves two linked weekends (3-6 April and 24-26 July) at Woodbrooke Quaker study centre, Birmingham, with sixteen intervening weeks at home, inviting us to explore elements of contemplative traditions and practices, and open ourselves to experiencing a deeper awareness of the Spirit at work in our everyday lives.

The first weekend includes introductions to the retreat’s themes and practices and gives opportunities for spiritual friendship conversations. The home-based modules, available on-line or in paper formats, will then provide linked suggestions for reflection and practice.

Previous participants on The World is our Cloister have said:

It gave what I hoped for and much more. The material has been and will continue to be an inspiration

It has been marvellous. It has changed the way I look at things.
