Beautiful Life retreat seeks home

Posted by Simon Parke, 20 March 2017, 5.59am

Due to sad and unforeseen circumstances, I’m looking for a new home for my Beautiful Life retreat.

It has been running annually for over ten years…

...and more necessary now than ever.

We know what we need.

We need a safe, still space somewhere in the south of England…south-ish at least.

One with eighteen or so single rooms.

And we seek a retreat house rather than a conference centre.

That is, we don’t want to be sharing with other groups, however nice they are.

We’d like a sense of home; a sense of our own space, rest and safety.

In such a setting, true adventures are embarked upon.

A pleasant meeting space is also on the ‘must have’ list and food, of course - such an important part of a retreat, this being cared for.

Life-giving soul space has never been more important.

We live in brutalised and distracted times and as Mary Oliver reminds us, ‘Stillness. One of the doors into the temple.’

If you could pass this on, share with as many as you can, I’d be grateful.

It’s a homeless retreat doing what we’re all doing…looking for a home.
