King's Chapel Winter Retreat: Playing with Prayer, Experimenting with Connection | February 15-17 | Glastonbury Abbey, Hingham, MA
At this year's retreat at Glastonbury Abbey we will explore ways to connect with God and ourselves through experimenting with and experiencing different types of prayer. While the Bible is God’s revelation to us, our prayers are our self-revelation to God. Through prayer we open our hearts to the Divine, sharing our hurt, hope, aspiration, and wonder. Prayer is the way most people of faith have connected to God throughout the ages, and predates priests, liturgy, and the modern-day divisions between denominations and even religions. Spend a weekend away in a small community of Benedictine monks and reconnect with yourself and members of the King's Chapel community. We will learn about and try on a variety of prayer practices, using techniques like calligraphy, labyrinth walking, centering (meditative) prayer, and joining the brothers as they pray the daily hours. We will learn about prayers from our historic prayer book as well as have opportunities to write our own prayers.
Come and join us to recharge, refuel, and learn in a beautiful setting. Hosted by Rev. Amelia Edson. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any question
