Product Description

There is a great need today for soul-weary people to have opportunity to follow Jesus' invitation to "Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest." (Mark 16:31) Sue Pickering helps you plan and host retreats of varying lengths - from a few hours to a few days - and introduces the practices of contemplative spiritual development including reflection, times of solitude, and silent prayer. Five segments of the book introduce the process of facilitating retreats, provide resource sheets, and then present detailed ways to offer retreats that are short in length (up to 3 hours), 1 day (6 - 8 hours), and three nights or weekend retreats. An accompanying CD contains all the material in the book. 262 pages, softcover from Canterbury Press.

Publisher's Description

Time apart to listen to God is an essential component of the Christian life. This wide ranging practical resource offers complete programme ideas - from short spiritual breaks for those who can only manage a couple of hours from their work or family responsibilities, to a range of ideas for whole day and full weekend retreats.

Experienced retreat conductor Sue Pickering explores the elements that are commonly used in retreats:silence, journalling, using craft materials, reflection, lectio divina, imaginative prayer, music and movement, and more.

Out of these building blocks, unlimited retreat programmes can be created. Part two offers themed retreat programme outlines complete with handouts which are downloadable from the accompanying CD Rom. These include Quiet Breakfasts, A Prayer Walk, A Garden Retreat and much more.

Editorial Reviews

'This book provides a clear introduction for those starting to lead quiet days and a wealth of material to plan and direct such events ... Rev Sue Pickering provides a good balance between theory (the "why" and the "how") and resources (the "what") ... I may never be called on to lead a retreat but I will use this inspiring book to enrich my own journey.'
