Come and enjoy the space, peace and quiet of Blackley for a day of retreat.
For many of us, life can be a continual round of doing, yet we know that it is important for our mental, spiritual and emotional life to take time to stop, reflect and pray. The Peace and Quiet Days here at Blackley are an opportunity to do just that.
In peaceful surroundings, come and stop.
Use the space, resources, and grounds of the Blackley Centre, including the Chapel, as you wish, in silent prayer, reflection, reading, and meditation.
These days are especially helpful for those who want to discover more about how to manage themselves in conflict situations, or who need some support or coaching to get through a difficult time.
Each day starts with a group reflection which can provide a helpful focus for the day, and participants can create an individual programme from a menu of activities.
There are one-to-one conflict management session, opportunities to explore your style under stress through the Gilmore Fraleigh Friendly Style Indicator, a Blackley Pilgrimage (a walk through the beautiful countryside, stopping to reflect and pray at various points) and opportunities for spiritual direction. These activities need to be booked in advance and are subject to availability. See below for more details
Previous attenders have all given it 5* rating (out of 5!) and have expressed appreciation for the reflections and coaching they have received.
Hot and cold drinks, delicious cake and biscuits are available throughout the day, with the option of bringing your own lunch or booking a light lunch.
Cost for Day : £20 waged / £15 concessions
