Contemplative Weekend Retreat
New Residential and Online Retreat
We invite you to join us in a series of weekend retreats to learn how to connect to God through the art of contemplative seeing, listening and reading.
In each of the weekend retreats, you will learn different skills and understand how poetry or photography can help you connect with God. Learn how to approach reading, listening or taking photographs in a contemplative way and be given time to practise this. You will also be shown how to pray with one of your images or piece of prose you have chosen.
We invite you all to join us either in person as a weekend resident or as an online participant – united in heart and soul, together for the fresh outpouring on us of the joyful experience of God.
Our Lady of Mount Carmel
In this online retreat, the fullness of communion within the Carmelite family will shine forth in splendour with Mary the Mother of Jesus. She will teach us the way of sustaining intimacy with God in prayer and to share the joyfulness of God to others. Here we find the beautiful hymn sung on the feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel expressing the sentiment of this retreat: “draw us after you, Virgin Mary, that we may follow in your footsteps”.
