5 Day Retreat
USING ANCIENT WISDOM TO SEE
LIGHT & LIFE
Using light as a metaphor for life this retreat uses ancient wisdom from the Christian tradition to explore our life. Usually run at Christian retreat centres the format accommodates the community’s daily rhythm of life and has been successfully run at Sheldon & Penhurst retreat centres. Starting on Monday evening & finishing after lunch on Friday a different characteristic of light is explored each day with lots of space to create images. A camera is required, but a smartphone is fine and each evening images are shared together usually printing one for each participant using a high quality thermal printer. The format makes it accessible for people of any faith or no faith and some technical guidance is offered on using a camera.
I am far more aware of the beauty of God’s creation. behind what we see in our everyday lives. I now think more about the images I want to receive, take my time and pause for a moment. I see the light in more ways than one!Peter
I was anxious as I’m a complete novis with the camera. I quickly realised I need not fear, the realization that we receive images rather than take was illuminating. The meditations were very personal and I responded well to themVivienne
Thanks Steve for an inspiring retreat. I feel I have only just touched the surface and will carry on the good work you have begun, to receive photos as a gift. I shall be referring a lot to the booklet which accompanied the retreat as I reflect on my daily life.Julia
