Three labyrinth events for Summer 2019
Saturday 8 June,
Abington Barn, near Cambridge UK
Labyrinth Weekend 21 – 23 June 2019
Mirfield Community of the Resurrection,
An opportunity to experience life in an Anglican Monastery, while exploring the labyrinth as a form of prayer and meditation. On this retreat I will be assisted by Judy Fox, who will bring a lot of wisdom and experience to our gathering.
We’ll learn a little about the history and symbolism of the labyrinth. We will have fun making our own corn labyrinth in the beautiful grounds and lighting it with tea lights for a magical dusk labyrinth walk.
There will be plenty of time for quiet reflection. I will bring some of my beautiful Rowan wooden finger labyrinths and there will be opportunities to walk Mirfield’s neo-medieval turf labyrinth and the indoor canvas ‘pebble’ labyrinth.
On this retreat there will be a good deal of silence: during the ‘Greater Silence’ from evening worship in the Church until 9 am; in the monastery church and corridors; and at most (but not all) meal times. Although it can seem strange at first, keeping silence can be restful, and blossom into a wonderful gift.
Worship: joining in with the community in their worship times is an optional part of the retreat. It can be a wonderful experience simply to listen to the liturgy and plainsong.
The cost of the weekend is a very modest £200, which includes a single room and all meals. Would you like to join us for our labyrinth adventure?
