WCCM in the South West Silent Retreat

July 23rd – 26th 2020

The Greenhouse Christian Centre, 17 Burton Road, Poole, Dorset BH13 6DT

Retreat Leader: Alex Holmes, Scottish WCCM coordinator and an experienced teacher in our community, will join us on retreat and will offer a daily talk.

ONENESS: “ Christian prayer has been described as the way of one-ing, becoming one, becoming one with the One who is One” John Main

This retreat is intended primarily for those who have been meditating for some time and wish to deepen their practice within a time of sustained silence.  The days will be structured, though all is optional.  The programme will be based on several periods of meditation together each day, with some walking meditation.

The Centre is well liked by those in our community who have stayed there before. It offers comfortable, modern accommodation with simply furnished bedrooms, mostly ensuite. Some are on the ground floor (including one recommended for the less able), most on the first floor. There is no lift.  It is set in a heavily treed residential area, reasonably quiet, with gardens - and a heated pool.  The Centre’s website is www.the-greenhouse.org

The retreat will begin on Thursday afternoon with meditation at 5.45 and supper at 6.30. The retreat will finish with lunch at 12.30 on Sunday. We want to welcome all who wish to come, irrespective of means. The cost of the three day retreat is £235 (sharing bathrooms) or £265. If this is beyond your budget bursaries are available.
