Finding God in the Day - 3 Days

Starting on Friday evening we use blockbuster films to explore how God is touching our lives. Drawing upon some of the Spiritual Exercises we shall prepare using Ignatian Prayer techniques and then watch a movie and consider how we are being moved by God.

During this retreat there is opportunity to reflect alone and in the group. It is anticipated that there will be no more than 18 retreatants.

We shall also be joining in the rhythm of prayer in the Priory Chapel too.

There will be popcorn and icecreams as we watch the films as well.

An excellent introduction to using Ignatian Spirituality through the film genre.

This retreat is designed to help you draw closer to God and the call of faith upon you as you encounter God through the medium of film and some of the St Ignatius’ Spiritual exercises.

As the Spiritual exercises say “within us all is a profound and ceaseless yearning for life, love, freedom, joy and a community where we feel always and deeply at home”. In this retreat you will have opportunity to encounter God through silence, group conversation, watching films, liturgical prayer and 1-1 spiritual direction: as well as having time for relaxation and refreshment in the context of excellent accommodation and catering. During the retreat we shall prepare to watch, watch and reflect upon 5 Films which we will use to explore parts of the Spiritual exercises of St Ignatius with the help of scripture prayer and reflection as well as a goodly bout of enjoyment and laughter. This retreat will bring you deeper and more close to God through the media of film as well as traditional prayer and silence.

Prerequisites: None you will be given materials and explanations to join in with all aspect of the retreat.
