September 4th-7th 2020
Workshop Leaders – Sue and Bob Whorton
The Lord’s Prayer represents Jesus’ own teaching on what prayer is and what it is not. What does it say to us today? How do we explore this prayer afresh and use it as we need on our own spiritual journey, however “good” or “bad” we might be at praying?
In this workshop we will engage with each other prayerfully, meditatively and physically to rediscover the freshness and immediacy of prayer in general and this prayer in particular.
There will be opportunities to walk in the countryside and also in our orchard labyrinth to make a mini-pilgrimage with this prayer.
Accomodation for the workshop will either be at Les Jardins des Arts or in a nearby gite. All meals are included. Transfer by minibus or car will be provided to and from the airport or railway station in Poitiers. If you wish to travel by train, search for journeys from London St. Pancras via Lille to Poitiers. If you wish to fly, we recommend the RyanAir flight on the 4th Sept. which leaves London Stansted at 14.10, and arrives at Poitiers at 16.45. On the 7th of September the flight leaves Poitiers at 17.10 and arrives at Stansted at 17.35. Of course, coming in your own car is another option. If you are planning to come by car and are willing to take passengers, please let us know.
If you live in the area and wish to attend non-residentially you are very welcome. The workshop starts on 5 September at 9.30 am and finishes with lunch on 7 September. Lunch and evening meal are provided on 5 and 6 Sept and lunch on 7th.
