    We are a group of women and men from 12 Step programmes, following the teachings of John Main and the World Community for Christian Meditation.  We are not affiliated with any 12 step programmes of recovery.  We are here to share this ancient path of Contemplative Prayer as a way to practise the 11th Step: Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understand God, praying only for knowledge of God's will for us and the power to carry that out.

    Elemental Spirituality - Earth, Wind, Fire & Water led by Rev Ruth Scott

    Earth, air, fire and water all appear in Biblical tradition. The writers use them in different ways to explore the experiences and encounters of ‘being’ and ‘Being’: the deep, dark womb-like places from which life comes over and over again and to which it returns; the breath of God which inspires and scares in equal measure; the flame-dancing Spirit that comforts, challenges and changes those who feel the heat; the waters of restoration which sometimes threaten to overwhelm yet often produce riches from the depths. Some of these energies we identify with more than others, or connect with at different times.

    Through silence, image, word, music and art, this retreat offers the opportunity to work imaginatively with these four elements, to play with them and pray through them, and to further the inner conversation faith opens up in our hearts and minds. Each talk begins with a poem by R. S. Thomas to help focus attention more deeply on the unfolding themes. The opportunity to explore through, painting and clay-sculpting will be present throughout the retreat in the art room for those who want to explore beyond words.

    This retreat, led by Rev Reuben Preston begins with lunch on Monday 1 October 2018 and ends with lunch on Friday 5 October.

    This retreat is designed to help you draw closer to God and the call of faith upon you as you encounter God through the medium of film and some of the St Ignatius’ Spiritual exercises.

    As the Spiritual exercises say “within us all is a profound and ceaseless yearning for life, love, freedom, joy and a community where we feel always and deeply at home”.

    In this retreat you will have opportunity to encounter God through silence, group conversation, watching films, liturgical prayer and 1-1 spiritual direction: as well as having time for relaxation and refreshment in the context of excellent accommodation and catering.

    During the retreat we shall prepare to watch, watch and reflect upon 5 Films which we will use to explore parts of the Spiritual exercises of St Ignatius with the help of scripture prayer and reflection as well as a goodly bout of enjoyment and laughter.

    This retreat will bring you deeper and more close to God through the media of film as well as traditional prayer and silence.

    Prerequisites: None you will be given materials and explanations to join in with all aspect of the retreat.
