Cost £30 Concessions £20

Please bring a packed lunch.  Coffee and tea provided


Teresa of Avila in her Way of Perfection gives us four goals in following Christ through the Carmelite way:

·        poverty of spirit                                                                  

·        silence and solitude

·        discernment of spirits  and

·        freedom of spirit


 In our day together we shall pursue these four goals with readings and insights from the two Carmelite Doctors of the Soul: Ss Teresa of Avila and John of the Cross. No prior experience or learning is necessary. There will be opportunities for silent prayer during the day.
