Sounding the Silence
Exploring depths in stillness and speech

The Hayes Conference Centre, Swanwick, Derbyshire
Join us for our national ecumenical conference - an opportunity to be inspired through talks, workshops, worship, discussion, resources and conversation!
Key contributors (to date):
- Malcolm Guite: poet, singer-songwriter, priest, academic
- Martin Laird: contemplative, professor and author of bestselling Into the Silent Land
- Jacqui Lea: artist and founder and guardian of the Community of Hopeweavers
- Sara Maitland: writer, feminist and lecturer
- Frances Novillo: musician, singer and liturgist
- Peter Tyler: theologian, psychotherapist and author

We will be particularly focussing on the theme of silence - both in the context of retreat and in the unspoken areas of our lives. There will also be opportunities to explore what it means to be part of a reflective community, through silence and contemplation, throughout the conference.
