Time set aside: an individually guided retreat
18-21 March 2024
The retreat will begin at 17:00 on Monday and end with lunch on Thursday.
Glenthorne Guest House and Conference Centre
Woodbrooke and Glenthorne working in partnership.
As we consciously embrace a substantial period of silence we open ourselves to things we need to see and acknowledge, whether that’s old hurts and habits or new paths and projects. Life-changing surprises and deep insights become possible.
This retreat is carefully structured to encourage silence to develop throughout. While sharing regular quiet gatherings with other participants, you will have daily personal time with one of the retreat leaders where you can share what is happening for you but also receive individual guidance on how to make the most of what the silence is showing you.
As you explore what is arising specifically for you personally, you will also discover the benefit of being in the supportive presence of others. Each day will include shared silent worship, a morning presentation to help nurture your personal reflections during the day and plenty of time to enjoy the beauty of Glenthorne surroundings.
This course will involve:
Glenthorne offers a wide range of accommodation the majority of which is en-suite; all are simply and comfortably furnished.
Recently added are two rooms, designed to the highest standard for wheel-chair users. All bedrooms are situated at ground or first floor level, some in the main house and others in the adjacent Bankside.
On the booking form, there is a chance for you to let us know about any accessibility or communication adjustments that will enable you to participate more fully in the course. Please be clear about your requirements when booking so that we can ensure you are allocated an appropriate room.
