Spiritual But Not Religious

This weekend with much loved course leader Margaret Silf is open, in Margaret’s words, to ‘all spiritual pilgrims’ irrespective of their religious background and beliefs. Margaret explains: “More and more people are describing themselves as spiritual rather than religious. What might it mean to distinguish between the two, and is this a helpful distinction? During the weekend we will explore some of the implications of ‘spirituality’ as the essential partner, and not an opponent, of ‘religion’ (in its truest sense). There will be opportunities to explore what ‘spirituality’ means to us and how we live it in practice, and to look at the question of whether a truly spiritual journey requires any allegiance to institutional religion.”

Margaret Silf is an ecumenical lay Christian, committed to working across and beyond the denominational divides and to accompanying people on their spiritual journey. She is the author of a number of books on the spiritual journey for 21st century pilgrims who may or may not identify with institutional religion. She is a regular and much-loved contributor at Ammerdown: “Margaret is wonderful: gentle, simple and holy”; “She always manages to be deeply spiritual and yet down at everyone’s level”; “Her communication is fantastic, greatly helped by her sincerity and her sense of humour”.

* Margaret is staying on to run a Monday to Friday retreat the following week. We are offering a special rate of £600 to anyone who would like to attend both the weekend course and the retreat, plus a very special rate of £30 for SBB on Sunday.

Led by: Margaret Silf

Please arrive for 6pm on Friday. Retreat ends with lunch on Sunday.
