“Come, come, whoever you are. Wanderer, worshiper, lover of leaving. It doesn't matter. Ours is not a caravan of despair. come, even if you have broken your vows a thousand times. Come, yet again, come, come.” – Rumi

*NEW* Pray as You Can... Not as You Can't
Led by Rosey Feuell
Monday evenings 6 – 8.00pm with refreshments available from 5.45pm Dates: 27th March & 3rd April + 5th, 12th, 19th & 26th June Cost: £120
The course is designed for practising or trained spiritual directors, those exploring this ministry and those working in, say, pastoral care, therapy and listening situations where one may “advise” others on prayer. We aim to demystify prayer by considering various simpler kinds together and to discuss issues which may arise when working with directees/clients. There will be opportunities for personal exploration of the methods/material as well as discussion, problem-solving and further input from the tutor. Participants will be encouraged to share from their own practice insofar as this is comfortable and within limits of confidentiality. Above all, we will be thinking of how to handle responses we receive to the key spiritual direction question “How are you praying at the moment?” There are no “perfect” ways to pray, so it is good to have confidence in encouraging people to develop their own style/s of prayer. Hearing the experiences of others may help greatly.
The Course is open to people of all Christian traditions, those of other faith groups, and any who are seeking refreshment and greater depth in their prayer.
