One-day Silent Retreat – Finding Hope in Silence
PAUSE; BREATHE; COME TO ONE OF OUR 1-DAY SILENT RETREATS in 2022 organised by the Kent Group of the Janki Foundation for Spirituality in Healthcare
They provide an opportunity to spend time with yourself, to care for yourself, and to spiritually recharge. There is an hour’s talk with suggested guided practices/exercises followed by 3 and 1/2 hours of silence. You can walk in the beautiful Quiet View Gardens, spend time in the Yurt, on the labyrinth, under the shelter, or reflecting in any of the meditation spaces. The time is yours. We will then come out of silence for the last half hour of the retreat day.
Saturday 6th August 10.30 to 4pm, ‘Finding Hope in Silence’, led by Rev Lizzie Hopthrow, Director Quiet View.
Saturday 8th October 10.30 to 4pm, ‘Taking Care of Oneself’ led by Dr Julia Ronder, Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist, Certified Mindful Self-Compassion Teacher, Janki Foundation Co-ordinator, Kent.
