Writing as Spiritual Practice

Writing as Spiritual Practice

Two Day Course 17th October and 14th November

This is a two- day retreat with writing time in-between.

“When we are connected to the writing process we learn to think more deeply and intensely. We learn to contemplate and reflect more thoroughly. Writing becomes a searchlight on our world…– Michael Lewin


Participants will explore creative writing as a means of reflecting on their personal and spiritual life experiences. A series of writing exercises and prompts will encourage you to produce your own written reflections.


There will be times of sharing what we have written, reading our creative expressions aloud to each other, so as you can get to know your voice, and find your rhythm.

£105 for both days
Silent Week

Silent Week

3rd - 6th September 2024

This is a time to draw back from the normal business of living, reflect on your walk in life and open yourself to God.  You are welcome to come for a day or stay for one or more nights.


Only guests on silent retreat will be staying with us at this time


An introduction to ways of stilling yourself and prayer materials will be provided. All ways of praying are a means of developing or deepening your relationship with God. There will also be opportunities for creative expression, if desired.


During the retreat there is an invitation to meet with a guide, who may help as a ‘sounding board’, helping to listen for God’s presence in the circumstances of your life.


“The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.

The Lord makes me lie down in green

pastures, leading me beside quiet

waters, and refreshes my soul.”

Psalm 23



From £43 for 1 day - £470 for 6 days
A Line made by Walking

A Line made by Walking

25th September 2024

A day exploring our sense of time and space with reference to the work of Artist Richard Long


The material world can be linked with the spiritual realm by the restructuring of our sense of time and place, in order to reveal something of the reality of our own situation.


Walking, observing and decision making are fundamental to the core of our spirit and origins. On this retreat, you will be invited to experience nature slowly and deliberately, documenting and intervening in the landscape.


It is perhaps everything around us that gives us our sense of reality. By taking reference from the physicality of our world, we as beings dwelling on earth are given a context to enable us to understand our place in that world. Long describes his work as


“a fluid mix of time, stones, space, movement, water, images and language.”

Slow Stitching Day

Slow Stitching Day

6th November 2024

“There is a time for undoing and a time for stitching;

a time for keeping quiet and a time for talk”

Ecclesiastes 3:7


Come away for a day from your busy life to the Bield and enjoy exploring the art of slow stitching in the comfort of our guest lounge, sitting beside the log burning stove and working on our stitching together in silence or with music playing.


Slow stitching is the practice of hand sewing with intention and thoughtfulness. There are no rules to slow stitching, the main thing is to have fun with arranging the fabrics and to enjoy the contemplative process of hand stitching.


The focus is not on what you create as this is not The Great British Sewing Bee but rather on the thoughts that arise as you pull the needle through the fabric slowly and calmly. It can provide a space in which to process and ponder on whatever thoughts and images arise as you work slowly.

Come away for a day from your busy life to the Bield and enjoy exploring the art of slow stitching in the comfort of our guest lounge or sitting outside in the walled garden or on the lawns. We will work together on our stitching together in silence or with music playing.

Join us for a short workshop painting an icon of Saint Colette with a lamb. She was a Franciscan nun closely connected with the values of Saint Francis.

HerBeauty

HerBeauty

15th-17th Novemeber 2024

This weekend retreat for women is an invitation to reflect on our beauty and goodness as those who embody the image of God.


Too often women hear messages telling them their beauty is about how they look or is valued by how they conform to society’s expectations. In this retreat we will be countering that message by celebrating with the God who declared, with a heart bursting full of love, “Women, I have created you in my image and likeness and you are good!”


A HerSpace Event.

Embodying Joy

Embodying Joy

22nd August 2024

In the Bible, the Greek word for “joy” is related to the Greek word for “grace”. It is a grace given to us by God, even in challenging times, because joy is not based on circumstances. In our Christian faith, joy can be understood as a deep-seated sense of contentment in what God has done and what God is doing.


In this day retreat you will be invited to notice joy and to try some gentle embodied practices and movement that can help awaken joy. There will be opportunities for guided meditation, personal reflection and group sharing.
