One of a series of day retreat’s on offer throughout 2020, working with the teachings of Fr Richard Rohr, Franciscan Friar, author and leader of the Centre for Action and Contemplation.
Theme for the day: Contemplation. Rohr writes “the lower-level unconscious mind is completely dualistic, judgmental and oppositional. It always takes sides. Contemplation goes beyond words (which naturally differentiate this from that) to pure, open-ended experience. Consciousness is not the same as your brain …. it is participative knowing”
Led by Rev’d Ian Spencer these retreats are based on themes from Rohr’s book of daily meditations “A Spring within us”.
Each day will include teaching, discussion and free time to practice/consider what we’ve learned.
The day will conclude with a contemplative Holy Communion service (optional but all invited) followed by afternoon tea at 4pm.
Cost £40 and includes morning coffee, 2 course lunch and afternoon tea.
