We will begin this retreat with a short storytelling/theatre piece and discussion that offers us a window into the compelling spirituality of the Desert Mothers of the early centuries. We will then explore the faith, prayer and lives of these incredible Christian women, deep disciples of Christ, who journeyed into the wilderness, lived alone or in community, battled with their demons and yearned to put on the mind and heart of Christ.
The retreat will include presentation, opportunity for discussion, music, images etc. Donna is an experienced retreat giver and worked at the ecumenical Tabor Retreat Centre in Preston, Lancashire, which involved leading retreats, events exploring spirituality, contemplative prayer/meditation and creative liturgy.
