    “Try to praise the mutilated world …”

    If you're looking for a weekend of vital and thought-provoking poetry reading, writing and reflection, together with the wonderful hospitality of Holland House, this weekend retreat is for you. Led by published authors Rosie Miles and Nicola Slee, we will use the Being Alive anthology as the basis for considering how poems can help inspire, nourish, motivate and resource us as we live through challenging times and into new realities.  We may also occasionally delve into the other anthologies in this excellent series: Staying Alive, Being Human, and – most recently – Staying Human.

    Do please join us for an inspiring weekend in good company.  To book your place follow this link  Being Alive Poetry weekend

    International Aramaic scholar Neil Douglas-Klotz returns to Holland House in 2020 to guide us through the Beatitudes following the path to "ripeness".

    Breathing with Unity, Living with Blessing 

    Chant, Movement and Contemplative Prayer with the Aramaic Jesus

    This year at Holland House, we will return to the heart-awareness of the present moment with a journey through the Beatitudes of Jesus in Aramaic. Through chant, simple circle movement and contemplative prayer, we will re-enter the state that Jesus calls tub, “blessedly ripe—at the right time and place” We will follow the journey of one of the most profound aspects of Jesus’ teaching, the Beatitudes in Matthew. This is a healing journey that takes us to deepest part of ourselves and then resurrects us in power and joy. Whether or not you have joined in these Aramaic retreats previously, this is a wonderful doorway into Jesus’ native spirituality and way of meditation.

    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.
