Into the Wild: A blog by the Discalced Carmelites UK

Welcome to the blog of the Centre for Applied Carmelite Spirituality, run by Discalced Carmelites and lay people. Here you will find meditations, interviews, and pilgrimages diaries. We hope these will help you in your daily walk with God and lead to a deeper relationship with Him.

Our Centre welcomes all who desire to seek their own way to the wholeness and the meaning of life. The centre offers courses and programmes, based mostly on Carmelite spirituality and its ancient tradition of prayer. For more information on the courses, retreats, and other programmes offered please visit our website.

If you live in or near Oxford you are very welcome to visit us, for mass or for some quiet time. The area around us also offers wonderful opportunities for walks and, if artistically inclined, some nature painting.

We also count with a well-stocked bookshop. where you can spend hours leafing through many Carmelite and other Catholic spirituality classics. It is regularly open during the day or you can send online orders.
