A day to go Deeper (incorporating the labyrinth)
Brian's much-loved retreats at the Wigwam Retreat Centre have provided regular seasonal opportunities to pause within our busy schedules to cultivate a deepening sense of communion with God, and to reconnect with the rhythms, seasons and cycles of the year. So we're delighted to welcome him back in October for this autumnal retreat.
He writes, “We always have such a mellow and fruitful time at the Wigwam. We'll make space to quieten our chattering minds, to let the Spirit lead and the soul respond. We'll let the silence speak, and we'll explore, very gently, the mysteries of the autumn season, which Parker Palmer describes as 'real and colourful, fruitful and whole'.
He continues, “The grass labyrinth at the Wigwam Centre provides an extra-special dimension to our day. I love it! We'll walk it slowly and prayerfully in the afternoon, and let it take us deeper into the day, and deeper into the mystery and wonder of God's presence, within it all.”
Brian Draper is author of Labyrinth: Illuminating the Inner Path, as well as Soulfulness: Deepening the Mindful Life, Spiritual Intelligence: A New Way of Being, and Less is More: Spirituality for Busy Lives. As an experienced retreat leader he has guided countless people around labyrinths. He is a writer, speaker and broadcaster, and often appears on BBC Radio 4’s Thought for the Day.
*Concessions available to those on a low income.
We hope you can join us!
