We will follow Jesus’ footsteps into the silence of the wilderness and attend to a Gospel text outlining this journey…

We will then explore ways of praying emerging from this wilderness experience, prayer that addresses the mind, emotions, silence etc.

Going deeper into our own prayer, retreatants will have the choice whether to enter the stillness through a slow motion mindfulness walk around their own home / outside or to sit still and pray through a finger labyrinth.

Out of Jesus’ wilderness experience came a vision of freedom (see Luke 4):  “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.”

We will consider how action can be grounded in silent prayer.

The retreat will include presentation, music, looking at paintings, various ways of praying and discussion etc.
