A Retreat for Summer


A new retreat package for summer 2024, including reflections to listen to and other material to read and linger with, suitable to use at home or away, on retreat or in daily reflections.

I Lift My Eyes: Seeking God in the natural world

Cost £30 (includes printed booklet) – available now until 30th September

Being in nature is a source of consolation for many of us, perhaps without fully knowing why. This retreat is an invitation to look long and deeply, and reflect on how we might read the signature of the Creator in the hills, the trees, the wingbeats of a ladybird, an opening flower. Who is the God we meet in this complex, fragile, surprising world? What do we learn about the earth and about ourselves? How do we respond?

I Lift My Eyes draws on the Psalms, poetry, images and other writing, including Annie Dillard’s wonderful classic of nature writing and spirituality, Pilgrim at Tinker Creek. It includes some hints and suggestions for reflections to do outside in the natural world.
