Silent Retreat 2021

Regular price £301.00

Saturday evening 14th August to Saturday morning 21st August 2021

It is expected that participants Meditate and have been on a Residential before.

We trust participants would have received one and hopefully two covid vaccinations. 

This will be an opportunity to come to complete stillness in good company, for those seeking peace and wishing for time to study and reflect.

This is a silent event including meal times and all other times. However there will be an opportunity to discuss what we have found at an optional evening meeting. There is no obligation to attend this. Meditation will be at set times in the Withdrawing Room or a place of your choice. It would be good if we could all meet together each morning for a Dedication and Reading in the Withdrawing Room.

You are invited to bring your own study or art materials and trusted to order your day in a measured way. You are free to explore the local area. It’s just a matter of writing on the blackboard that you have left the House and to confirm safe return.

There will be opportunities to help with the running of the House and Gardens, this will be on a volunteer basis. There will be two periods in the day, one in the morning and one in the afternoon when no physical work is undertaken so the house can come to complete stillness.

  • Each student will have their own room, although married couples can share a room.
  • Numbers will be limited to 26 plus if married couples share a room.

The Retreat will start on Saturday 14th August with access to the house from 4pm A light buffet supper will be available before we meet together to dedicate the week at 9pm.
