This retreat is for anyone who has felt the call to live a more prayer focussed life, or at some stage has felt drawn to entering a religious order, or who is just plain curious!
We will explore what draws us to reflect on the meaning of a solitary life today. Is it for me? Is it unfinished business in my spiritual life? Can I be “enclosed” yet still live in the world? Are there contemporary hermits, anchorites and solitaries in our churches? What relationship does the Solitary have with church/parish life? How do I begin the journey?
The retreat will offer a balance between silence, thedaily office and times of shared reflection.
