|Description:||The accessibility of photography today provides a powerful tool to help us slow down and see the light of life in new and exciting ways. By combining mindfulness and photography retreatants will discover beauty in different things and learn the power of their story, revealed in what they photograph.|
Christian theology will be used throughout the weekend, but the retreat is accessible and open to people of all faiths and none. Retreatants will only require a digital camera and enthusiasm. So, bring your smartphone, compact camera or larger DSLR camera and walk into the light.
On Saturday we will undertake a photo walk and retreatants will be able to take home a high quality mounted image of a photograph taken on that walk. This image will hopefully act as a powerful, physical reminder of their time spent on retreat here at Launde Abbey.
