Retreat: Lectio Divina

Fr Bede Leach OSB
En-suite £270.00 / Standard £240.00

This retreat will allow you to become immersed personally in Scripture through Lectio Divina, or “holy reading,” which is a medieval practice that the monks of Rievaulx, Fountains, Byland and Jervaulx engaged in as they prayerfully wrote down gospel manuscripts. Notes made in the margins during a day of calligraphy in the cloister served as the seeds for the monks’ nightly meditations.

You will work in interactive seminar groups to learn from each other’s contributions and become part of a community as you grow with each other over the retreat.


“A great balance of group time and independent time. Powerful facilitation; deeply moving & challenging experience which will stay with me” - Previous retreatant
