Topics to include: Listening, Praying/Dialogue and Human Being/Spiritual Being. This is not a ‘how to’ course. Using different experiences of ‘prayer’ (in its broadest sense), silence and a ‘creative listening’ method, each person is encouraged to ponder his/her spiritual journey in small, facilitated groups.

Finding Silence - Responding to the BBC series "The Big Silence"
Weekend retreats for those who have seen the TV series "The
Big Silence" (Broadcast 2010 October

of monastic silence. These retreats will provide an opportunity to reflect
on our relationship with God and to explore in a peaceful and beautiful
environment the gift of silence and stillness as the "gateway to
the soul". They include a gentle trial of silence for half the weekend and are structured around the pattern of monastic prayer.
Course or a Time & Space Weekend (like the one above) and who would like
to explore further the themes and topics.
