This can be as short or as long as you would like. If you are unsure as what to write, here are some 'guidelines' you may find useful: Your spiritual background, if any, and why you want to visit. This introduction of yourself is an outreach to the community before you arrive and will help us get to know you a little better and also help the community and the weeks focaliser to be more prepared. If you are a couple, or a family making a booking together, please will each one of you write a separate letter. Please don't make it a CV or a literary exercise! Mistakes in language do not matter, it is more important that you write a letter from the heart. Include in your own words, an outline of your present life (this could cover your present circumstances, your life choices, those people who are important to you, what inspires you, your joys and challenges, and so on). If you have — or have had — any emotional or health difficulties, we would like to know if and how these are affecting your life now. Finally, please write or type the letter yourself. We will treat it as confidential (and suggest you do the same, if this helps you, when you are writing and posting it).
