We will welcome you to the retreat space and help you to settle in. We’ll practice retreating together and will prepare for the week ahead.
Welcome, and ‘arriving’
Introduction to retreat principles and practices.
Opening activity. Grounding and reflection.
On day 2 you’ll begin by reflecting on your current situation, what is true for you now, and start honing questions about what’s next.
‘Where am I at?’
‘Letting our life speak’ – where do I find myself right now and how did I get here?
Sharing our stories and discerning our questions
Before being able to discern the right next steps it’s important to really listen to what you want deep down at your core. We’ll create space to do that here and will guide you through some practices to help.
‘What do I want…?’
…from my life and my relationships
Listening to my deeper heart.
What really energises me?
How do I keep this available to me?
You’ll be thinking practically about how you’ll create your own way ahead.
‘Who am I?’ (really?)
What are my gifts and talents? …. to enjoy and to share
How to organise my life around who I really am
We’ll close by pushing into how to make the meaningful shifts you’d like to make. Again, you’ll be thinking practically about how to move forwards.
Setting new intentions for how I want to live my life….
…in the small things as well as the big ones.
Practical next steps and how to stay true to my intentions
