    Due to the enhanced Tier system now in place, and concerns about January restrictions becoming tighter,  we’ve moved to a new date at the end of April, hopefully things will be more settled.  The good news is, that means a few more places are available!

    For many years Holland House has hosted a residential retreat based on the books and spirituality of Fr Richard Rohr.

    Always popular, this year despite Covid we’re holding our 2020 retreat as planned but working within the safety guidelines set out by Government.

    The Warden (Revd Ian Spencer) will be hosting the retreat along with his colleague Urs Mattmann and will include talks, discussion, meditation, worship and free time.

    Using Rohrs book “Hope against Darkness: The transforming vision of St Francis in an Age of Anxiety”, and his latest book “The Wisdom Pattern”, we’ll be exploring  what Rohr see’s as the most pressing issue of our age, a  “crises of meaning … so many people have lost heart today feeling both confused and powerless – many have lost any over-arching meaning [to life]”.  Rohr turns to the life and vision of St Francis in order to articulate the problem, and then catch the vision (and practical application) of St Francis’s spirituality in order to redeem it (e.g. the pattern of “order – disorder – reorder”)

    If you’re looking at the world and feeling powerless to help heal it, or just feel hopeless – this retreat will put a spring in your step once again.

    Arrival from 4pm onwards,  retreat concludes at 11.00am Monday

    Following on from Diarmuid O'Murchu's hugely successful debut for Holland House in November, a second on-line retreat is now available.

    In Diarmuid's words:

    Entering Springtime with Creation Spirituality

    "Spring 2020 marked the onset of Covid 19. Spring 2021 invites us to review the deeper meaning of this virus and the now indisputable link to our irresponsible interference in nature. While experts invest huge hope in a vaccine, people of faith also need to discern what an earth-centred spirituality would look like, and how it can enhance the well-being of person and planet alike".

    The day will run from 10.00am - 3.00pm, and as before will include your questions asked via the chat facility, break-out rooms for small group discussion, a plenary for wider discussion, and a time of meditation to close. Don't miss it!  Here's the link to purchase your place Entering Springtime with Creation Spirituality Minimum price is £25, normal "in-person" price would be £40.

    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.
