    Richard Rohr meditation - Discharging your loyal soldier

    9:30 amHolland House

    One of a series of day retreats on offer throughout 2019,  working with the teachings of Fr Richard Rohr, Franciscan Friar, author and leader of the Centre for Action and Contemplation.

    Led by Rev'd Ian Spencer these retreats are based on themes from Rohr's book of daily meditations "A Spring within us".

    Theme for today is   “discharging your loyal soldier”. There are times when soldiers are needed, but when the war ends what next for the loyal soldier ?  We all have an internal loyal soldier for whom without a war life appears frustrating and meaningless. Rohr’s “gateway to silence” for this meditation is “the war has ended – go in peace”.  What might this mean for us, and for the wider community ?  How is this connected to healing and peace ?

    Each day will include a short act of worship, teaching, discussion and free time to practice/consider what we’ve learned.

    The day will conclude at 4.00pm with afternoon tea.

    Cost £38 and includes morning coffee, 2 course lunch and afternoon tea.
