AN INDIVIDUALLY GUIDED RETREAT
AN INDIVIUALLY GUIDED RETREAT
In an Individually Guided Retreat (often called an IGR) a time is set aside each day to meet with your personal retreat guide. These meetings are an opportunity to talk over what has been happening for you during the day particularly during your times of prayer. After listening to whatever you wish to share your guide may suggest some scripture or other text to use as a base or backdrop for your prayer until your next meeting.




OCCASIONAL ACCOMPANIMENT
OCCASIONAL ACCOMPANIMENT
Sometimes you might not want to be in total solitude nor to meet with a retreat guide each day for an IGR. In this - case mostly at a time outside of those set aside for IGR’s - you can ask for Occasional Accompaniment which usually means one or two sessions with a retreat guide – e.g. at the beginning and end of your stay. These would be arranged when mutually convenient for guide and retreatant.




EXPLORING SILENCE AND YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD
EXPLORING SILENCE AND YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD - currently unavailable
This is a weekend intended for people who wish to deepen their awareness of God but who have little experience of a silent retreat. Alternatively it is for those who may wish to have a taster before they commit to a longer retreat time. Each day there will be an opportunity to meet with a retreat guide who will accompany you through the weekend, helping you to reflect on the experience of silence and being open to God. Each evening there will be an opportunity for those who wish to pray together.
Modern living can make us all very unaccustomed to silence and stillness. The demands of daily life can make it hard to set aside time to think about our lives and our relationship with God.

A retreat is an extended period of quiet prayer and reflection which can last a few days or longer.  In the quiet time of a retreat we can be helped to become aware of our feelings, moods and inner reactions so that we can get in touch with what we really desire from God and what God might desire for us.

Silence is a way of respecting the ‘sacred space’ of each other, enabling one another to discover what God might be saying to us in our own time and at our own pace.
