One Day Retreat at St. Michael’s in Ewell

‘Being’ in Silence is a very powerful experience. We will have exclusive use of St Michael’s, so there will plenty of space to follow your own rhythm, as well as to participate in the guided meditations and Conscious Resting sessions.

During the rest of your time, you can sit and write at the table in the library area, make a conscious cup of tea in the kitchen, perhaps gaze out of the upstairs window from the armchair, or simply rest in the main Sanctuary. ‘Being’ in Silence is a very powerful experience.

Traditionally it has been the religious orders that have recognized the power of silence, believing it to be the simplest path to God. However, in earlier times, the silence was considered to be a goddess, embodying the presence of the Divine Mother. Silence was considered to be ‘golden’, with its own vibration, higher and purer than anything else that life has to offer an earthly being.

Entering the silence creates space for your Soul’s wisdom to shine through. Here you can also come face to face with yourself, which is not always a comfortable process. But in the willingness to just be with your own thoughts, without the addition of other people’s opinions, an inner strength and peace can develop that gives freedom beyond words.

To get the maximum benefit out of this experience and to allow your brain rhythm a chance to slow down enough to calm your nervous system and connect you with a deep meditative state, I am going to ask everyone who attends to disconnect from the phone for the whole day.

You are most welcome to give your friends and family my number to text in an emergency, my phone will be checked by one of the team at regular intervals.

Places are limited to 14 to ensure maximum comfort and enjoyment.
