    Holland House is delighted to announce a weekend in person with Diarmuid O'Murchu this Advent

    We Await the Coming – Advent as Subversive Memory

    Advent recalls the birth of Jesus in our world, while also reminding us God’s future coming at the end time. In this weekend conference, Diarmuid O’Murchu will introduce new insights on the meaning of Advent, following the guideline of Scripture scholar, John. D. Crossan: While we are waiting for God’s intervention, God is actually waiting on our collaboration. The challenges to Christian faith are quite substantial and through input, reflection, and dialogue, will be explored over the weekend".

    With increasing numbers logging-on to Diarmuids on-line events for us, the weekend is sure to be a sell-out.
    Mark a space in your diary for what will be a great inspirational Advent retreat.

    Many of us make new year's resolutions that start in good faith but soon fizzle out,  everyday-life just squeezes our good intentions off the map.

    Good physical and mental health is something that shouldn't be squeezed out of our lives, indeed they should be a priority , but making a resolution to be fit &well in body and mind has the same squeeze problem.

    This weekend is designed to get us off to the best of starts for the new year. Ian Spencer will lead us in a weekend of yoga practice that not only supports our bodies, but helps strengthen our breath and clear our noisy minds. No previous experience of yoga is necessary, and Ian will be adding regular dates across 2022 to support your intention - so no more "fizzle-out" problems!

    " ‘Soul’ is a confusing term – commonly bandied about in religious circles but seldom defined or much understood. It’s also used in psychology, and popular culture where for example music, art, conversations, food, friendships, habits and rituals may be considered soulful. Perhaps the great dilemma of our times is a ‘loss of soul’ – a dislocation from our deepest selves, from compassion, from nature – ultimately, from the divine. Yet when soul is neglected, it doesn’t simply go away; it appears in obsessions, addictions, aggression, and loss of meaning."

    Drawing on music, art, poetry and biblical imagination, this weekend retreat will consider, not only the meaning of soul in theological and cultural terms, but importantly, explore tangible ways to foster soulfulness in ordinary everyday life, and in our world.

    Dave Tomlinson is an Anglican priest, and chaplain to the St Ethelburga’s Centre for Peace and Reconciliation. He holds a Master’s degree in Biblical Hermeneutics, and is the author of many books including How to be a Bad Christian - and a better human being and Black Sheep and Prodigals – an antidote to black and white religion. Dave also regularly contributes to BBC Radio 2’s ‘Pause for Thought’ and currently invites all to his Holy Shed every Sunday evening.

    The retreat runs from Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon. All inclusive cost - £305
