Seeing the light in life [through photography]

Leader: Steve Radley

The gift of photography can enable you to discover your own life and surroundings in new ways. Photography is taken from the Greek words meaning ‘to draw’ and ‘light’, so literally means, drawing with light. The retreat will use light as a metaphor for life and explore ways of using the camera in a contemplative way to help us see light and life in its many forms. We will also explore the story of our images and discover what the images we are drawn to may help us discover about our own life.

Residential price: £375.00
Non-residential price: £210.00

Pilgrimage

Leader: Mandy Callf

It’s thought a good idea to regularly take time out, stop, take a look at where we are in life – both in the everyday stuff and the internal or ‘spiritual’ stuff. And isn’t that how it feels sometimes – just far too much stuff and somewhere I am lost within it all?
