A Guide to the Spiritual Conversation in this retreat

Spiritual conversation involves deeply listening to one another. Being open to the idea of God’s spirit as guiding. In the first round, each person shares the insights gained from their prayer. In the second round, the participants explore how they were impacted by what they heard in the first round, eg. “What I heard was…” In the third round a more open discussion

Each group will be limited to five per session. Further dates and times will be announced in due course.
