POETRY AS SPIRITUAL PRACTICE is the title of a one-day writing retreat in Eden on Monday 19 October, which is being taught by Eden poet Victoria Bennett, with American poet Murray Bodo OFM.
The retreat offers a chance to listen, connect, reflect, unfold and create through poetry and reflective writing, exploring the creativity, passion, mystery, doubt, grief, silence, joy and wonder held within the Spirit of Love. You will be encouraged to discover your own voice, ringing out, at the centre of the sacred stillness. with gentle guidance from Victoria Bennett, and Murray Bodo OFM, who will also be giving readings from their own poetry during the day – which is suitable for everyone, whether you use writing as a regular spiritual or personal practice, or whether this is your first journey.
The retreat will be held in the inspiring surroundings of Ravenbridge Mill (www.ravenbridgemill.co.uk), and the cost is £25 (£15 concessions) which includes a delicious home-cooked lunch and refreshments.
