Holy Island Nov 21st–25th 2022

21-11-22 6:00 pm - 25-11-22 10:00 am
Cost on request

Our time on the island will include a rhythm of prayer, spiritual reflection, time to be creative, relaxation and an exploration of Celtic Christianity. Retreat sessions will also include (weather permitting!) entering into the beautiful physical spaces of this island of St Aidan and St Cuthbert, which has been called ‘a thin place’, e.g. time on St Cuthbert’s Island – a very small island, seconds away from the main island where St Cuthbert used to go to have solitude. This island is a place of natural beauty and wildlife – we’ll take time out to simply ‘be’ in the gift of Creation. 

Accommodation is in the village. Lunches / evening meals are provided, but retreatants provide their own breakfasts. Retreatants also sort out their own travel arrangements. Costs vary depending upon the type of room (ensuite or shared bathroom). Please email retreat leader for costings and any other questions you may have.

Dates: Monday Nov 21st to Friday 25th 2022
