Exploring silence in nature retreat at Scargill House in North Yorkshire, UK
23 September - 27 September
From Mon 23 to Fri 27 September 2019 the Quiet Garden Movement will be leading the ‘Exploring silence and nature’ retreat at Scargill House in North Yorkshire, UK.
The retreat will include space for individual reflection and silence, as well as group time where we will explore a variety of exercises and practices that nurture our relationship with silence and nature in the outdoors. It will be led by Matt Freer and Tina Jefferies, both experienced retreat facilitators and authors of our Quiet25 course.
Drawing on different aspects of Christian contemplative tradition, the retreat will be inclusive, flexible and accessible to a wide range of participants. The Quiet Garden Movement is ecumenical and the retreat is suitable for everyone, those of faith or none. There will also be an opportunity to hear more about Quiet Gardens and connect with the Movement.
Scargill House has been part of the Quiet Garden Movement for many years, with its Walled Garden being a designated Quiet Garden. During the retreat we will also be making use of the chapel, gardens and surrounding estate.
