Spirituality in the Face of Collapse (Reading & Writing Retreat)
Many people find that the real and serious threat of ecological and social collapse prompts a reflective turn of mind. This retreat offers a few days to pursue that reflectiveness in the company of others, to write and to read drawing on a library of diverse philosophical and religious sources.
The plan is simple: to read and write as you wish. In the afternoons we will offer optional workshops or structured discussions. We (Emily, Jonathan and Miriam) will be available for one-to-one or small group consultations. You will be invited to send a sample of your writing and reading plans in advance. There is a meditation room you can use and you will also be welcome to join regular daily worship of the resident community. The beautiful gardens are designed for reflective walking, and there are plenty of wilder footpaths just beyond the boundaries.
