Living Free - A Weekend Guided Retreat

He brought me out into a spacious place; he rescued me because he delighted in me. (Psalm 18:19)

This weekend will be a chance to reflect on ways in which we can move into greater freedom in our lives. Some aspects we will consider are; the need for rest and solitude, a sense of our own personal value, and God’s compassion for us.

Our reflections will help us to find a personal answer to the question, ‘how can I begin to move into the freedom God has prepared for me.’

Libby Dobson and Sarah Chabowska will be combining their gifts as composer and musician (Libby) and poet and photographer (Sarah). To sustain and nurture you this weekend, they will offer;

  •          Original music and song
  •          Art work and visual images
  •          Poetry
  •          Guided reflections
  •          Scripture
  •          Opportunity for one-to-one sessions
  •          Personal space/reflection
  •          Beautiful surroundings
  •          Times of prayer

Libby has been writing and performing contemplative songs for a number of years. H and art. Sarah has been involved in leading prayer and meditation in a wide variety of contexts and has been writing poetry for many years. Both Libby and Sarah are trained in spiritual accompaniment.

They have produced their first CD together in 2015 called PEACE, which includes a selection of songs and poetry used in their recent retreats.

Libby and Sarah have led similar guided weekends at Ammerdown and were showered with praise. “Libby and Sarah are so talented. They truly surpassed themselves this weekend”; “They offered beauty and created a feeling of healing and happiness which will hopefully stay with me long after the course.”

N.B.  Libby and Sarah are also leading five Quiet Days at Ammerdown in 2017, on 11 February, 8 April , 3 June, 8 September and 8 December
