2020 Retreat

A Good Life, 7-9 February

What constitutes a good life? In our fast paced western society, a good life is measured by how much one produces. We are in danger of becoming human ‘doings’ rather than human beings. Our retreat leader, Ana Mullan, a qualified spiritual director, led the group through a series of reflections aimed at helping us consider our priorities, our use of time and how deeply we engage in the present moment.
