Quiet Days and Workshops 2018

 

 

 

Wednesday 11th April: Dancing our Prayers.  2.15 – 4pm Led by Judy Turner. Dance is the language that unites body, mind and spirit. (Fortnightly thereafter: April 11th and 25th, May 9th and 23rd, June 6th and 20th.)

 

 

Thursday 12th April 2.30pm: Well-Being Sessions “Listening to the Wisdom of our Bodies”

And Monday 16th April 7pm.

Led by Paul Golightly and Priory Team (weekly thereafter except school holidays).

The Power of Intention, Meditation, Spiritual Practices, Energy and Bodywork are proven in much recent research, to offer great benefits for our wholeness and well-being in the stress of daily life, in coping and dealing with traumatic experiences. For the last three years St Antony’s have offered well-being and resilience days to the recovery community and carers. These weekly sessions will use the well trialled methods of these days in an easy flowing hour.

 

 

 

Saturday 14th April: Together in Meditation. 10 - 12.30 Two separate hours of meditation rooted in the Christian tradition at 10 and 11.30am.

 

 

Thursday 19th April:  Ministry Support Half-day

 

 

Saturday 21st April:  Viriditas – Greening Power. 10.30 - 4 pm.

In the beginning was Viriditas (a central theme within Hildegard of Bingen’s theological reasoning and a cherished notion throughout her work). Creation and humanity is showered with Viriditas, a lush, moist greening power and vitality that is alive in every atom and every cell of our ‘beingness’. We will focus on meditation, body prayer and movement, touching the earth and celebrating the Creator whom Hildegard calls ‘the purest Spring’.

Quiet Day Leader Lynn Nausner is a member of the Priory team, and a Hildegardian at heart.
