Retreat at Prinknash

IMG_0274

So this afternoon we held our Desert Soul group as a mini retreat at Prinknash Abbey. The Abbey is the home of a Benedictine monastic community set in stunning Gloucestershire countryside and the peace experienced in that setting is very tangible.

Our session took the usual format for a Desert Soul session, approximately half and hour exploring the ‘matters of the soul’ followed by about half an hour of silent contemplation…and then closing reflections.   The big difference today was we that we followed our meeting with tea and cake in the Abbey tea room, which is simply one of the best tea rooms in Gloucestershire as far as I am concerned and their gluten free cake really does take some beating.

It was such a good afternoon that we have decided  such a mini retreat, now and again, is definitely good for the soul. Next session will be back in our usual venue on 19th September at 3.00, all are welcome.

Blessings, Jayne
