An exploration of how to connect with God through nature. The real world is more interesting and mysterious than we might ever have imagined, and we are rooted in this mystery. The aim is to explore this mystery through rich experience and reflection, leading to a purposeful response in how we live our lives. We will consider beauty, awe, wonder, deep time, wilderness, liminal space, belonging and rhythms, spending some time outside to experience nature, and also inside, to reflect on this experience and to consider images that illustrate spiritual learnings from nature.
The retreat will draw on the work of https://www.mountainpilgrims.org.uk.
John is the author of ‘Beyond The View’, a founder of Mountain Pilgrims and a keen photographer, mountaineer and long-distance walker.
