Programme

Paying Attention to God

2–6 March 2020 (Mon–Fri)

A week of looking, listening and noticing. How do we become more aware of the presence of God in our lives? The answer is by paying attention – to ourselves, to each other, to art, literature and our natural surroundings. With a mixture of workshop and reflection, this is the perfect week not only for writers and artists, but for anyone who wants to live a more engaged, more attentive life.
