Sounding the Silence
Exploring depths in stillness and speech
The Retreat Association’s annual ecumenical conference this year will focus on the theme of silence – both in the context of retreat and in the unspoken areas of our lives. Contributors include Sara Maitland, whose Adventure into Silence has become a highly sought after Wind Sand & Stars journey, offering an experience of the unique and powerful silence found in the desert and drawing upon her highly acclaimed A Book of Silence.
The conference takes place 18 – 21 June 2018 at the Hayes Conference Centre in Swanwick, Derbyshire.
It offers an opportunity to be inspired through talks, workshops, worship, discussion, resources and conversation, all exploring what it means to be part of a reflective community, through silence and contemplation. Follow this link for further details: http://www.retreats.org.uk/conference.php
