Sacred Spaces - A journey with a Celtic flavour towards who we truly are in God

Please arrive by noon on Monday. Course ends with lunch on Friday.

 Celebrated retreat leader Margaret Silf has chosen to lead her annual Ammerdown retreat on the themes developed in her book ‘Sacred Spaces’. It will be inspired by the Celtic intuition that certain spaces are ‘thin space’, or ‘sacred space’, where the boundary between the visible and invisible, the temporal and the eternal realities, is very thin. Such places/spaces are especially open to the transforming power of God, and they occur not only in the physical landscape but in our own experience through the different stages of our lives.

Margaret writes: “During the retreat we will make our own personal pilgrimage by exploring seven ‘sacred spaces’ in Celtic spirituality: the infinite knot, the high tower, hilltops, wells, groves and springs, crossing places and boundary ground. What wisdom can these Celtic ‘sacred spaces’ impart to us today? Where is the ‘thin space’ in our own stories and how can we become more finely attuned to its transformative power? We will also discover that what is most personal is also most universal. How might these Celtic intuitions guide us into deeper understanding of our inter-relationships with each other and with all creation?”

 * Margaret is leading a weekend course at Ammerdown just before this retreat. We are offering a special rate of £570 to anyone who chooses to attend both the weekend course and the retreat.
