Learning to Be at Home (Part One) - A retreat with a difference

The retreat will be facilitated by Sr Monica Butler, an experienced educator and spiritual director who has come to recognise that all we need is already present. She therefore passionately believes that the ‘task’ of our lives is to reclaim our true self.

Led by: Sr Monica Butler

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

This is the first part of a retreat offered over two weekends (Part 2 will be held on 21 to 23 October) – although taking part in Part 1 does not mean that you have to commit to attending Part 2.

The retreat will be facilitated by Sr Monica Butler, an experienced educator and spiritual director who has come to recognise that all we need is already present. She therefore passionately believes that the ‘task’ of our lives is to reclaim our true self.

She writes: “It is a gentle coming-together of many aspects of our search for fulfilment. I describe it as a process of self-discovery in God. The aim is to connect more deeply with our true identity, through the integration of our entire life experience, both the joys and sorrows and the successes and failures. The process itself draws on the wisdom and mystical tradition of the five great world religions.

This can be an exciting and energising way of helping us claim the real ‘me’. We will work with a story about someone who became lost, and this will enable our own inner journey. There will be some input, conversation, energy work and time for reflective prayer. Above all, time just for you to BE!”

This first weekend will focus on ‘coming home to the soul’, the boundaries of the self, the masculine and feminine spirit within us. The second will explore the conscious and unconscious aspects of our being, and how we can recover our intuition and desire.

*Special discount: £460 for Part 1 and Part 2 booked at the same time. £307 for non-residents.
