Poetry, Prayer and Silence

Does poetry make your heart sing? Do you feel more and more drawn towards silence?

Do you long to pray and meditate more creatively?

This course is led by experienced teacher, retreat leader, life coach and spiritual director Sue Glanville, who has a passion for poetry and creative prayer.  She writes: “We will be reading and discussing a number of poems with a view to being challenged, to grow more aware, and to experience that deep sense of resonance about our own spiritual life journeys. We will draw on a treasury of poems. Write our own haikus. Sit and walk in silence together. Experiment with prayer and meditation. Use the poems to inspire us to paint, write, maybe even dance!"

Comments from previous a weekend- "inspiring and grounding and as well as giving me a lot of insights into some wonderful poetry....I could see how it connects easily and well with prayer and silence. ...the ideas being presented have created new possibilities for me as a person and in my thinking and growth."

 

N.B. There will be periods of silence at specific, agreed times.

Led by: Sue Glanville

Please arrive by noon Monday. Retreat ends with lunch on Thursday.
