Retreat Association Summer Event 2016
The Royal Foundation of St Katharine, London - 6 June 2016
Our summer event was a wonderful day of speakers, discussions, worship, conversation and refreshments and took place at the Royal Foundation of St Katharine, London.
Professor Peter Tyler was our main guest speaker talking about mindfulness within the Christian context, looking at its Buddhist roots, the wider tradition of Christian prayer and how significant it has become to contemporary life.
Our patrons Fr Christopher Jamison and Revd Graham Sparkes engaged in some lively reflections on the talk – inviting Peter to join them for their final conclusions.
Executive Director, Alison MacTier, gave a presentation about the current work of the Retreat Association, inviting those gathered to get involved within their local communities.
Everyone joined together in song and worship led by liturgist Emily Walker.
Between talks, song and discussion there was also plenty of opportunity for conversation and fellowship in the beautiful grounds of The Royal Foundation.
Our grateful thanks to all our contributors and those who attended and helped to make this such a memorable day!
