Course outline

The focus of the retreat will be reflecting on the seven enigmatic ‘I Am’ sayings of Jesus in the fourth Gospel of John, through the spiritual teachings of St Isaac of Nineveh (7thC Syrian), Jan van Ruysbroeck (14thC Flemish mystic) and St Teresa of Avila (16thC Spanish Carmelite) amongst others.

Each day we will meet for silent prayer, Holy Communion, creative liturgy, lectio divina, chanting and spiritual conversation around Christian mystical writings that illuminate the deepest call on our life. There will be opportunities for conscious work ('karma yoga') in the Centre and the garden, walking meditation and a pilgrimage to the cave of St Molaise.
