One-day Silent Retreat – Spiritual Warriors Abide; How can we Play our Part?

SERIES OF ONGOING ONE-DAY SILENT RETREATS 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.
