Contemplative Photography: Learning to Focus God’s Lens

Revd Morna Simpson

During this retreat we’ll be concentrating on noticing where God guides and focusing in macro and out to the landscapes of what God is drawing us deeper into. We will be using photography as a starting point, and will draw on Ignatian spiritual practices to bring together the photographic stance and God’s lens enabling us to see the world in fresh and new ways.

All are welcome: those who have very little experience with cameras or camera phones, and the more competent photographer – the camera is a tool, or a window through which we seek to connect with the Divine light and find those thin places around us.

Morna Simpson has been a contemplative photographer for a number of years now, and has developed tried and tested ways of praying with photographs and photography and using the natural world as God’s sacred text. Her MA dissertation research focused on using contemplative photography as a tool for missional prayer and she continues to be passionate about using photography and spirituality in unique ways to open conversations with those who are not sure about faith and belief. Morna is currently Rector in the Yardley Hastings Benefice in the Diocese of Peterborough.

Early bird price: £365 if booked before 31st January 2022. Full price £385.

We want all our guests to be safe and secure while Covid remains a concern. For details of our comprehensive Keeping You Safe programme click here.
