This retreat will offer “ashram time’ during Advent – time and space to quieten together. Our programme will be structured around a day at Shantivanam, with periods of meditation, chanting, prayer and readings from different spiritual traditions. Alongside this there will be opportunites for lectio divina, creating mala or beads for contemplation and walking in the country side. There will be free time, and all aspects of the programme are optional. Although not silent, there will be extended periods of quiet. The weekend will be facilitated by members of the working group. Once again, we are returning to the Monastery of Our Lady and St Bernard, set in the beautiful Cotswold countryside, this is home to a group of Bernadine Cistercian Sisters.
