'Healing Tides' - A Weekend Guided Retreat

As a deer longs for flowing streams, so my soul longs for you, O God. My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. (Psalm 42:1-2)

Libby Dobson and Sarah Chabowska will be combining their special gifts as composer and musician (Libby) and poet and photographer (Sarah) to take you on a journey of discovery into the healing tides of God's love. Give your spirit space to breathe, and your soul an opportunity to be restored, as we reflect together upon the ebb and flow of life. To sustain and nurture you on this journey, you will be offered;

  •          Original music and song
  •          Art work and visual images
  •          Poetry
  •          Guided reflections
  •          Scripture
  •          Opportunity for one-to-one sessions
  •          Personal space/reflection
  •          Beautiful surroundings
  •          Times of prayer

Libby has been writing and performing contemplative songs for a number of years. Her most recent CD, ‘Wide Horizons’, combines songs, instrumental music and art. Sarah has been involved in leading prayer and meditation in a wide variety of contexts and has been writing poetry for many years. Both Libby and Sarah are trained in spiritual accompaniment.

Libby and Sarah led a similar guided weekend at Ammerdown in 2015 and were showered with praise. “Libby and Sarah are so talented. They truly surpassed themselves this weekend”; “They offered beauty and created a feeling of healing and happiness which will hopefully stay with me long after the course”.

N.B.  Libby and Sarah are also leading five 'Quiet Days' at Ammerdown in 2016, on 5 February, 9 April, 3 June, 8 October and 25 November.

Led by: Libby Dobson and Sarah Chabowska

Please arrive 6pm Friday. Course ends with lunch on Sunday.
