8–12 July 2024 (Mon–Fri)

Have you ever wondered why you come away from a conversation feeling that you didn’t connect or were misunderstood? it may be because your are a ‘Responder’ speaking to a ‘Planner’, or a ‘Doer’ conversing with a ‘Contemplative’ and therefore you speak very different languages. To build healthy, happy and productive relationships at work and at home, it’s important that everyone feels seen, heard and understood. Knowing how to do this so that you can connect and communicate at a heart level can be learnt. This week you can learn your Communicator type and language with Life Languages™ to find the key that unlocks that learning, and discover:

• Why you internally process the way you do (our internal dialogue)

• How and why you act, feel or think the way you do and the impact that has on those around you

• How to reduce misunderstandings, mis-communication and conflict

As well as communicating with ourselves (internally) and with others, we also communicate with God. We will explore how we may be listening to Him and how He may be speaking to us.

The price includes the cost of the LifeLanguages Profile questionnaire which should be completed before attending the retreat. You will receive the necessary information upon booking.
