Product description

Time apart to listen to God is an essential component of the Christian life.

This wide ranging practical resource offers complete programme ideas - from short spiritual breaks for those who can only manage a couple of hours from their work or family responsibilities, to a range of ideas for whole day and full weekend retreats.

Experienced retreat conductor Sue Pickering explores the elements that are commonly used in retreats: silence, journalling, using craft materials, reflection, lectio divina, imaginative prayer, music and movement, and more. Out of these building blocks, unlimited retreat programmes can be created.

She also offers themed retreat programme outlines complete with handouts, including Quiet Breakfasts, A Prayer Walk, A Garden Retreat and much more.

Product Reviews

'This book provides a clear introduction for those starting to lead quiet days and a wealth of material to plan and direct such events ... Rev Sue Pickering provides a good balance between theory (the "why" and the "how") and resources (the "what") ... I may never be called on to lead a retreat but I will use this inspiring book to enrich my own journey.' -- Rona Orme
