Come to the well.
The well is deep.
Wellspring is a one-day retreat incorporating Christian mindfulness and biblical reflection, to which all are welcome. It’s a chance to spend some time apart from the noise of the world, to be fully present to yourself and to your communion with God, so that by the end of the day, you can re-enter the world refreshed.
A series of nurturing silences in which you can choose to pray, read, take a walk, or even have a little snooze will be interspersed with a few guided (and optional) reflections led by facilitators Iva Beranek and Carol Casey. There will also be an opportunity to avail of one-to-one discussion with a spiritual director.
This is our second offering of Wellspring and takes place as we’re beginning our Advent journey. Here are some things participants said of the last Wellspring in May:
‘Best of all were the thoughtful and well paced presentations which gave me a wonderful springboard for the times of silence.’
‘An incredibly sensitively and prayerfully planned day.’
‘I have come away reminded of the tools at my finger tips so to speak to deal with the many curved balls life seems to throw.’
‘A truly refreshing day.’
The day will begin at 9.45am at the Church of Ireland Theological Institute and conclude by 4.00pm.
The cost is €40, including coffee & tea, lunch and parking. Places must be booked in advance (firstname.lastname@example.org).
