Spirit & Place
A Women's SoulCollage® Retreat in Devon, England
October 22-27, 2018
"We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience."
Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
Join Sally Freed this fall on a soulful journey to Devon in the heart of southwest England. We’ll stay at the beautiful Mill House Retreats, a traditional centuries-old thatched farmhouse offering all the comforts of a modern home. We’ll experience warm hospitality, delicious and freshly prepared meals, cooler temps and cozy fireside gatherings, creating an ideal environment for a rejuvenating autumn retreat.
We will discover our own deep wisdom and intuition through the simple, yet profound, creative process known as SoulCollage®, as we explore our connection to both Spirit and Place. How do we name and experience this mysterious divine energy that weaves through all of creation? And where do we seem to locate ourselves when this life-giving force feels present? The poetry and writings of John O’Donohue and Kathleen Norris – along with other sources of spiritual wisdom – will guide our reflections and conversations.
Beyond Mill House we will visit with local artists who draw their inspiration from the Devon landscape. We’ll walk country paths framed by ancient hedgerows and make friends with a "friendless" church. We’ll enjoy a tour of Knightshayes, a beautiful Victorian country house surrounded by acres of gardens and wildlands.
This retreat will be an opportunity to create, reflect, explore and be restored. We will share meals and laughter, song and silence, and offer space for prayer, meditation and ritual. Your time at Mill House will provide ample room to breathe on your own, as well as make meaningful connections with others.
I hope you’ll join us in Devon this October for a wonderful SoulCollage® journey of Spirit and Place!
