Nourishing the Pilgrim Soul. Weekend retreat with Ravi Ravindra Fri 01 Sep - Sun 03 Sep

  • Spirituality

In this retreat we will discuss in detail the meaning of a pilgrim soul.  What sorts of practices nourish a pilgrim and what stands in the way? Each pilgrim must begin from where they are, influenced by a particular culture and religious tradition.  However, a state of being nourished by Truth or God is in essence transcultural and transreligious.

Our enquiry brings together the philosophical and spiritual traditions of East and West, as we explore some aspects of eternal wisdom, including the nature of Ultimate Reality, the spiritual and material structure of the cosmos, and the purpose of human incarnation. The subtle teachings of the two major streams of spirituality, the Abrahamic and the Indian, will reveal pathways for spiritual development.

Fully inclusive residential single room £365; shared room £325 per person

Non-residential (includes all meals except breakfast) £285

Registration 4-6pm Friday 1 September. Course begins with supper together (included for non-residential retreatants), followed by the public talk at 8pm. Course ends with afternoon tea and departure at 4pm on Sunday 3 September.
