Spiritual Writing ***FULLY BOOKED***

17th June, 4:00 pm to 19th June, 3:30 pm


**This retreat is now fully booked. Please use the form below to enquire about being placed on our waiting list.**

Come and discover the art of spiritual writing, writing about our spiritual lives and writing from that deep reflective place inside each of us. We will explore how to write about our own spiritual journeys, past, present and future, and map those areas of unique individual interest to us. We will discover the value of writing meditative and reflective work, the benefits of writing for therapy and prayer and explore good journalling practices and daily writing.

This retreat will suit the novice as well as existing writers. There will be facilitator input, meditations, and time for individual reflection and writing as well as individual discussion with the leaders. The retreat will conclude with Signposts, suggestions to take you forward on your own writing journeys.

The retreat facilitators are Eirene and Richard Palmer, both published authors and holding Masters degrees in Creative Writing. They run Café Writers, a large Christian writers group based at Derby Cathedral. Eirene runs a blog, backstreetpilgrim.com and Richard is Groups’ Coordinator for the Association of Christian Writers. They have run many courses on the spiritual journey and are interested in the tricky task of being human, and finding self and God through our writing. They are currently writing a book on spiritual writing.

Early bird price: £260 if booked before 12th April 2022. Full price £280.

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.
