Quiet Day

2nd November 2017 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Mind the Gap

“Betwixt and between the familiar and the completely unknown” – R. Rohr

This day will explore the threshold times in our lives when we can no longer rely on what has been familiar to us and when we are stepping out into the unknown.   They are times when we live in uncertainty and not knowing, where we have questions, experience silences, ambiguities and paradoxes.  Yet times when our relationship with God can deepen.  They are sacred places for the pilgrim who dares to wait on God in the reality, complexity and fullness of the present moment.  They can be a place of risk, often of pain and of expectancy and growth.

The day will be led by Teresa Onions, trainer and former counsellor and Director of Pastoral Care UK and Barbara Joyce, retreat leader, spiritual director and former counsellor.  It is inspired by the insights from the book ‘The Virgin Eye’ by Robin Daniels a Christian, Jungian Analyst and leader of retreats. It will also include the spiritual wisdom of other pilgrims.

There will be opportunities for personal reflection and some small group discussion. The aim of the day is to enable you to encounter God in your in between times.
