Young and Contemplative 3-7th April

3 April @ 6:00 pm - 7 April @ 1:00 pm

About Young and Contemplative... Sometimes it seems like our lives are worked out in the nexus of conflicting aspects of ourselves. Sometimes the head pulls one way, and the heart another. How can we reconcile head and heart, earth and heaven, the human and divine, reason and rhyme? Perhaps the rhythm of the friary offers a way... From group members ’...is a group who come together for mutual support, shared searching and challenge. Our common practices of contemplation include Christian meditation and Taize prayer, though we each come from different perspectives.’ (Hannah) ‘...seeks to extend roots down into contemplative Christianity in order to steadily grow towards open, compassionate and reflective engagement with the contemporary world. We seek to be a place where friendship, dialogue and inspiration flourish across boundaries.’ (Pat) ‘...is a diverse group of young people each walking their own spiritual p i l g r i m a g e . I t o f f e r s a h a v e n t o s h a r e s t o r i e s a n d encouragement.’ (Hiranya) ‘...is inspired by the practice of silent, waiting prayer. As a group we seek to understand God by opening ourselves to the silent presence who works with each of us.’ (Phil) ‘...is a group of young people who are in some way all searching for something, and share silence and different forms of spiritual practice in this search.’ (Katie) This year's retreat: truth, integrity, reality can contemplation help us be real in a world of fake news?   Please click here for a brochure on this course.
