Flourishing: Life in all its fullness

Leaders: Peter Parr and Heather-Jane Ozanne

"I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full." John 10:10 NIV. What does it mean to "have life, and have it to the full"? What makes me come alive? What prevents me from flourishing? What is the relationship between flourishing and suffering? How can I use my gifts to contribute to the flourishing of my communities, the earth and the world? Do come and join us if you would like to explore the questions above in a safe and accepting space.

Living through Loss

Leader: Mandy Callf

Loss is part of our human experience, all through the different stages of our lives. The covid-19 pandemic in particular has been a time of loss: loss of freedom, loss of `normal`, loss of physical contact, loss of loved ones, especially cruel where there was no opportunity to say `goodbye`. The apartness may also have raised past losses for which we have not grieved. This retreat is a gentle time of being held in a safe place as you explore that loss and find how you can help yourself to cope with and live through loss.

Residential price: £120.00
Non-residential price: £90.00
