Julian of Norwich: ‘There was a treasure in the earth which the Lord loved.’ Julian’s writings are complex and deep but their meanings are beautiful in their simplicity. We are the treasure. The course will aim to engage with Julian, the woman, her life and spirituality, offering the opportunity to explore her words through reflection, music and laughter. Discover how the message of her Revelations for the world is as relevant today as it was in the 14th Century. There will be times to be quiet, times to discuss and times to Simply Be.

She carefully noted what children said about God, Angelic encounters, death and bereavement and found they spoke of experiences which they viewed as good but sometimes dark. They simply asked to’ be believed’ as they demonstrated spirituality in advance of their years.
