Whitby Retreat - June: Rewilding the Heart

A time to slow down to the rhythm of the earth and welcome all that arises, whatever the season of our hearts. Listening to the sea, the land, poetry, our bodies, so we may call our spirits home in the wider-than-human-world.

This retreat will be at St Marys on the Cliff in Whitby. The house is owned by the Sisters of the Congregation of Jesus The retreats run from Friday 4pm to Sunday 2pm.

There are 7 single rooms – none of the rooms are en suite but each has a sink and there are 3 bathrooms. The Chapel looks out onto the sea and there is a large lounge/dining room and garden.

Meals will be cooked for you but washing up and other tasks will be shared. The retreats are not silent as we will be working with the theme and content of the days together.

Tess Ward worked as hospice chaplain and celebrant before going freelance. She is now a writer, spiritual accompanier and retreat leader living in Northumberland. Her books are The Celtic Wheel of the Year and the forthcoming Rewilding the Heart.
