Listen to your life - a holiday retreat based on the Enneagram
Wed 6th to Wed 13th June 2018


Listen to your lifeThe Enneagram is a powerful, easy-to-use tool for understanding ourselves and other people. Based on nine distinct personality styles or strategies, it cuts to the core of our recurring patterns of thought, feelings and behaviour – the things we repeatedly do, some of which we wish we didn’t. In this holiday retreat we will gain a comprehensive working knowledge of the Enneagram and how it can help to transform our personal lives and relationships.

Dave Tomlinson is a qualified teacher of the Enneagram with over 15 years’ experience of applying it to personal, pastoral & organisational settings. He’s the vicar of a thriving parish in North London, a spiritual director and author, and a popular speaker and retreat leader.

All meals in Casa Roberto are included in the cost of £660 per person.  All transport during the retreat is provided by people carrier. 

Additional costs include flights to and from Perugia airport.

Please also allow 200 Euros for light lunches, evening meals out and incidental expenses.

What kind of God do you believe in?
Thursday 21st to Thursday 28th June 2018


What kind of God do you believe in?This intriguing subject will be explored in a variety of ways during this holiday retreat for a small group. For example: is our God always compassionate and loving or capable of wiping out entire tribes; completely holy and perfect; endlessly merciful and our judge? Is God made in our image or are we made in his or her image? What is God really like?

There will be plenty of time for rest and relaxation as we talk, eat, pray and travel together for seven beautiful mid-summer days in Umbria. Visits to Assisi, Lake Trasimeno and Florence are planned on alternate days.

At Umbrian Retreats, near Umbertide in Northern Umbria, Clive and Florence Morton have been running holiday retreats since 2010. Accommodation is provided in Casa Roberto, Sopra and Terra. All meals at Casa Roberto are included in the cost of £660 per person and there are no single supplements.

Praying with Thomas - Insights from the Gospel of the Twin…
Wed 4th to Wed 11th July 2018

 

Pray with Thomas“As the years have passed since the discovery of the Gospel of Thomas among the manuscripts of the Nag Hammadi Library, it has become increasingly clear just how important this Coptic version of the Gospel is to our understanding of the Jesus tradition and early Christianity” so writes Lynn C. Bauman in his preface to the second edition of his translation of the Gospel.

This retreat invites you to engage prayerfully with the ‘sayings’ preserved in this remarkable text, appreciate the deep resonances with familiar gospel passages, and discover new insights into the impact of Jesus’ teaching for seekers, of ages past, and today.
I will invite each of you to be as scribes ‘trained for the kingdom of heaven’ and bring out of your treasure ‘what is new and what is old’ (Matthew 13.52) as we prayerfully engage this Gospel, in the company of the Christ within, and the faith that makes all things new.
