I can’t recommend this retreat more highly.  It was my first ‘retreat’, and has left me just full of wonder, and so thankful that I was able to experience those two days with yourselves in particular – it made it very special for me! I left on an absolute high, content and very much at peace with myself. 

Time and space for…
Connecting your story with the Easter story and with wisdom stories
Responding using a wide choice of media
Individual spiritual accompaniment
Walking in the Porter Valley
Feasting and fellowship with home cooked food.

The retreat will use Godly Play, a creative and imaginative approach to spiritual nurture that has its roots in storytelling and Ignatian spirituality and Deep Talk, a process which has been adapted from Godly Play and which uses life-coaching, peer-to-peer group work and storying to explore questions of identity and life-purpose.

The retreat will be lead by Kathryn Lord, a Godly Play storyteller, Deep Talker and trainer and Alison Seaman, a Godly Play storyteller, a retired trainer and an experienced spiritual accompanier.

Cost £95 – includes all meals (lunches on both days, evening meal on Friday). There are a number of subsidised places for people on low incomes – please make enquiries to kathrynlord22@gmail.com Early booking is advisable. Places are limited to 8 people.

Accommodation…Bed and breakfast can be arranged in local homes for £30 a night (£50 for 2 nights) – please make arrangements through Kathryn. Hotels in the area include Wilson Carlile Centre Hotel (ask for reduced rate for church events) or the Kenwood Hall Hotel.

More feedback from previous participants:
I loved it all!!  I did think the balance of the two days worked really well – the Godly Play, with Deep Talk and the opportunity for time alone – loved being able to get out and walk.

Many thanks for a wonderful retreat- spacious and still.
