Resting in Presence – Individually Guided Retreats


Course Details

Woodbrooke’s individually guided retreats ‘Resting in Presence’ offer you an opportunity for a few days of individual reflection and stillness.

This will be a chance to pay attention to your inner wisdom, to become more aware of your true self, and perhaps to explore more deeply the role of Spirit in your life.  You will have space to ‘just be’ and to reflect; perhaps considering decisions you want to make or changes you want to work towards.

Remaining dates for 2019

We are holding space for Resting in the Presence on the following dates in the remainder of 2019:

Sunday 27 October – Friday 1 November 2019

You can choose to come for between two and five nights. Please indicate how long you would like to stay on your booking form.


You will meet each day with your own spiritual guide who will help you to focus, reflect and discern. The beautiful space that is Woodbrooke’s house and gardens provide a place of nurture and an open Quaker welcome.  The retreats are open to those of all faiths and none.

We encourage you to hold your own personal silence during your time here and a quiet space is set aside for retreatants’ exclusive use.  At Woodbrooke days begin with a Quaker Meeting for Worship, which is based in silence, from 8:30 am – 9:00am and end with ‘epilogue’ which is a short time of reflection at 9:30pm  both are open to everyone staying at Woodbrooke.

The retreat begins at 6.15pm, with dinner on the first evening followed by a short introduction to your time here (bedrooms are available from 4.00pm). Please try to arrive between 4.00pm and 5.00pm to have time to settle in and set aside the busyness of life.  You may choose to come for between two and five nights. The retreat finishes with breakfast on your final day.  You are asked to clear your bedrooms by 9.30am.

Please be aware that other guests will also be staying at Woodbrooke while you are on retreat so whilst we aim to offer a place of stillness, nurture and calm, we cannot guarantee that the whole building will be silent.


Two nights: £245.00
Three nights: £345.00
Four nights: £445.00
Five nights: £545.00

These prices are inclusive of ensuite accommodation and all meals.
