Listen to your life - a holiday retreat based on the Enneagram
Wed 5th to Wed 12th June 2019


the EnneagramThe 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.

Being Human, Being Spiritual - Letting go of non-essentials
and making room for the essential you!
Wed 4th to Wed 11th September 2019

The history of humankind has been speeding up exponentially. Voices clamour for our attention from an early age, enticing us to desire this or that, admonishing us to be one thing or the other. Social media, advertising, news is all-pervasive. Options abound in everything from the coffee we drink to the lifestyle we embrace. Never before has it been so difficult to connect with the inner voice of our authentic self.

Drawing upon the deep insights of the perennial wisdom that has spoken its word gently and persistently throughout human history, and echoes through the sacred texts and practices of the world’s spiritual traditions you are invited to come to a still place and imagine a different reality that can be the keystone of your life journey.

We will explore how time-tested spiritual principles and practices can unite with contemporary techniques to help us strip away and let go of the things that distract and crowd out our hearts.

“To make a resolution and act accordingly is to live with hope. There may be difficulties and hardships, but not disappointment or despair if you follow the path steadily. Do not hurry. This is a fundamental rule. If you hurry and collapse or tumble down, nothing is achieved. Do not rest in your efforts; this is another fundamental rule. Without stopping, without haste, carefully taking a step at a time forward will surely get you there.”Shinchi Suzuki – Musician & Philosopher
