Quiet25 Retreat at Holland House – 28-29 March 2018
The first of the new residential Quiet25 Retreats for the Quiet Garden Movement will take place from 10am on Wednesday 28 March until 4pm on Thursday 29 March 2018, at Holland House, near Evesham, Worcestershire, UK.
Open to anyone, they are an opportunity to rest and explore contemplative and meditative practices from our Quiet25 Exploring Silence Course and connect with others involved in Quiet Gardens.
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.
The retreat will be led by Matt Freer and Tina Jefferies, both experienced retreat facilitators and authors of the Quiet25 course.
Matt Freer is the Project Manager for the Quiet Garden Movement. He was previously Environment Advisor for the Diocese of Oxford and founded the Oxford Forest Church group. He lives on the edge of the Black Mountains, nurturing space for retreats and workshops that connect with nature.
Tina Jefferies is a Trustee of the Quiet Garden Movement, Host of Sanctum Quiet Garden and author of How to Find Peacefulness (Hodder & Stoughton). She is an experienced writer and facilitator in education, qualified development coach and lecturer, and trained in counselling and lay Anglican ministry development.
Drawing on different aspects of Christian contemplative tradition, the retreat is intended to be inclusive, flexible and accessible to a wide range of participants. We are an ecumenical Movement and the retreat is open to everyone, those of faith or none.
The retreat will take place at Holland House, which stands in three acres of beautiful gardens alongside the River Avon. It is part of the Quiet Garden Movement and aims to work in harmony with creation (for more details see: www.hollandhouse.org)
