A Retreat with Julian of Norwich

6th May, 4:00 pm to 10th May, 9:30 am


Simon Parke


A retreat led by author and speaker Simon Parke.

Julian of Norwich was the first woman to write a book in England. She was also the most remarkable of the 14th century mystics, whose ‘Revelations of Divine Love’ has only grown in substance down the centuries.

On this retreat, in a contemplative spirit, we sit with Julian in her cell in 14th century England, listening both to the remarkable times in which she lived; and to her life, her words and her soul.

Whether or not you are familiar with her story, I hope your encounter with Julian at Launde will be a fruitful meeting for you.
