Silence & Stillness One Day Retreat - November | House of Prayer | Friday, 22. November 2019

Enjoy a day of deep rest and relaxation at the House of Prayer, the perfect venue for a silent retreat with its deep and palpable presence of stillness.

Slow down and recharge - With guided meditations, Conscious Resting and time for personal reflection in the house and garden
Disconnect from technology - Our busy lives cause our minds and bodies to be on hyper-alert which is stressful and tiring
Enter into the silence - Let your brain waves slow down and let your mind and body unwind
Create space - For your inner wisdom to shine through, and to reconnect to your true meaning and purpose
Connect directly - To the guidance of your Soul, a deeply comforting source of infinite wisdom and inspiration

Spending time in silence can be challenging at first. When life's distractions are taken away (phones stay switched off) we come ****-to-**** with ourselves. Thoughts and feelings that we have tried to repress through being busy begin to rise to the surface of our awareness.
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. The House of Prayer 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 simple lunch of soup and bread will be provided

What participants said about our One Day Silent Rerteat in May 2019
"Getting away from the noise and pace of everyday life and stepping into the silence is like a holiday for the soul. You hold the space brilliantly and Im very grateful. I loved the lunch, it was so great not to have to bring my own, it was so fresh and delicious."

"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."
- Sally Brockway
"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."
- Honorine Moynihan
"Everyone should experience a silent retreat. It’s the greatest act of self care amongst beauty and peace and people who know what can unfold."
"It was very calming to have the time and space to go deep within and tap into my own inner wisdom."
"Give yourself the gift of silence and permission to be still. Your mind, body and soul will be grateful."
