You are welcome to visit our community as a Retreat guest, so you get the experience of living in the community and time on your own, You will be part of our circle for the week, joining us for meditations, sharings including our morning meeting, meals and other activities that the whole community takes part in. However, instead of helping with the activities of our working life, which we call Love in Action, you will have time to choose how to spend this time. You will share a house with one of the members of our community but we will not ask you to share a bedroom;; although do be aware that our guest bedrooms link together so you may not have the privacy you would wish for.
You will have plenty of time to explore, take a dip in the sea, meditate & read in your house in front of a cosy fire and to reflect and take space from your normal life. And you’ll have the option of joining in our community Love in Action activities, when you wish.
Wednesdays are a rest day in the community. However, often we can take you to Fionnphort where you can catch the ferry across to the Isle of Iona to explore its mystical beaches and the ancient abbey.
At the end of your stay we invite you to put some love back in your cottage by cleaning it, to leave it as you found it.
“These two weeks have been extremely important and meaningful to me. I could say I remembered the rhythm of my own being / soul for the first time in over twenty years.” Guest after two weeks of retreat, November 2020
