Growth in Prayer and Reflective Living - Dumfries
The course run by the Epiphany Group aims to help people to pray and live reflectively by offering an opportunity to explore faith, discover meaning, and come to a deeper relationship with God.
For whom is the course intended?
The course is intended for those of different denominations and none. No particular ability in prayer is required, only a desire for God.
Different ways of praying taken from Ignatian, Celtic and other spiritual traditions.
Awareness of our different perceptions of God. The use of a journal and the value of self-awareness as aids to reflective living.
Prayer experienced through music, art and movement.
An introduction to Ignatian discernment, through which a person may come to make choices which celebrate the unique giftedness conferred on them by the Creator.
The method is experience-based and reflective. It includes small group sharing. Also, because of the participatory nature of the course, it is important that there is a commitment to attend regularly.
In addition to the weekly, or monthly, group meetings – depending on location – participants are offered the opportunity of one-to-one spiritual accompaniment.
Towards the end of the course there is a short retreat.
The course will be run over 7 weekends once a month, beginning on Friday evening from 7-9.30 pm and continuing into Saturday from 10am – 4pm
October 4-5 / November 8-9
Jan 24-25/ Feb 28-29 / Mar 20-21 / Apr 24-25 / May 22-23
