Spending time in silence can be challenging at first
When life’s distractions are taken away (phones stay switched off throughout the day) we come face-to-face with ourselves. Thoughts and feelings that we have tried to repress through being busy begin to rise to the surface of our awareness.
But when there is a willingness to meet these hidden parts of ourselves, and allow them to pass through, our capacity to find inner peace increases. Because of this, spending time is silence can be a very nourishing, restorative and illuminating experience.
On this one-day retreat you will be gently guided on how to ‘be’ in silence and how to get the most out of the experience
St. Micheal’s Sanctuary has a deep presence of stillness and is an ideal place in which to experience being in silence, especially for the first time.
- There is a maximum group size of twelve people
- A light lunch will be provided
The retreat is from 9.30am to 4.30pm.
The price for the day is £95 (which includes a light lunch). Scroll down to book a place.

“I was expecting to find the Silent Day Retreat difficult. I am an incessant chatterbox and the only time I ever stop talking is when I am asleep. Plus, I am forever checking my mobile devices. How would I cope if I had to switch them off for almost an entire day?
Marion was incredibly reassuring and actually, slipping into the silence was effortless. After a couple of hours, my mind slowed right down and by lunchtime, I had discovered my inner Prozac. I touched a profound bliss within that I had never experienced before and it stayed with me long after the retreat was over. In essence, it was life-changing.”

“I loved last Saturday! I had never been on a silent retreat like that before and it surpassed any expectations I had. It helped me to truly experience the depth of this god-like energy within me. I felt connected to its gentle power, and how that power connects us all. The feeling has not left me.”
