Listening To The Earth Retreat
“My father taught me that we must listen to the stars, the moon, the wind, the animals and the trees. Today the climate is warming. The animals are disappearing and the plants don’t flower like they did before. The earth is speaking. She tells us that there is no more time”. Txai Surui Cop 26
This is a gentle, contemplative, prayerful retreat where we will explore how we might pay attention to God’s earth by listening to, and in, nature. What might the earth be saying? How might we want to respond? What might God want us to hear? What changes when we listen in this way?
It is formed of guided meditations both indoors and outdoors, involving some walking in the grounds of, and landscape around, St Bueno's. We will make use of scripture, art and poetry. There will be periods of silence as well as some gentle sharing. All are welcome! No previous retreat experience needed.
It costs around £24,000 per week to run St Beuno’s. The suggested offerings indicated help us to cover our costs, but no-one should feel excluded for financial reasons and bursaries are available. Click HERE for further details.
