Individually Guided Retreats


To take stock, discern, take time to pay especial attention your life, and life with God.


It is possible to book an individually guided retreat for 2 or 3 days, where after an initial conversation with your accompanist to clarify your focus, you would be given some guidance and the opportunity to meet with your accompanist once a day to discuss what was emerging from your reading/ thinking/ praying/ looking.


Costs will be for a standard overnight stay plus a donation for accompanists, depending on the length of your stay.   As with other retreats, bursaries are available.


To book, dates can be negotiated with the Warden and other accompanists via
