The Prayer of the Heart Retreat
What is a Prayer of the Heart retreat?
- To discover deep relaxation within themselves.
- To discover what makes their heart sing with joy.
- To discover their prayer of the heart.
- To discover it is possible to live life from an existence within us that is authentic, true, loving and joyful.
- To have a direct experience of falling in love with themselves.
How is Prayer of the Heart offered?
The retreat is offered over 4 days From Thursday 11th June 2015 starting at 4pm until Monday 15th June 2015 ending at 1pm. We arrange and plan the retreat in such a way that there is a wonderful feeling of spaciousness in terms of both relaxation and refection.
There is space offered daily for each participant to choose to:
- Walk in beautiful landscape around the retreat center
- Swim in the healing waters
- Enjoy the sunshine
- Be nourished by the tasty healthy meals
- Take daily naps or quiet time
- Enjoy the company of others
What happens in the group sessions?
There are group sessions offered 3 times a day, in the morning, late afternoon and a short quiet time session in the evening. In these sessions we gather together as a group to explore, to discover, to question and to be reflective. Amanda, Dominique and Louise facilitate the daily sessions which again are offered in a very spacious way.
Sample questions from the Prayer of the Heart retreat 2014.
“How would your life be if you knew your prayer is answered?”
“What does being true to yourself really mean?”
“What do you want?”
“What stops us being true to our self? “
All of these questions and more participants were invited to put to themselves with lots of space and lots of love. Within the sessions are periods of gentle body work, creative tools of focus, mediation, visualisation and much laughter.
Our main ingredient we place within our retreats is the introduction of self-honesty. We believe as we each discover it is safe to be honest to our self, a wonderful natural effect occurs. This being a sense of safety in being honest with ourselves amongst others and supporting others to be honest with themselves.
