About the event
Come & be gently guided through fields, lanes, bridleways & woodland, letting the beauty of the natural world & the rhythm of your feet soothe you.
This retreat is for all types of church-workers, to enable them to take some much-needed time out of their busy schedules, helping them to relax, take some gentle exercise, & be nurtured by the beauty of this exceptional place. All job-roles are welcome; lay, ordained, full-time, part time, paid or voluntary, priest, administrator, children’s worker, etc. some dioceses may be able to help you with funding for your retreat, so please contact them directly to check.
Sarah Price, your walk leader, has recently been leading wellbeing walks and reflective rambles for Herefordshire diocese and is a qualified lowland walk leader with her own walking business, Sarah specialises in leading people who are new, or returning, to countryside walking, Therefore if you are a keen walker, or if you are a beginner, you are all welcome & are in in safe hands.
Walks will be up to 6 miles in length, and someone with an average fitness level will be able to manage perfectly well, (please do however contact Sarah, if you would like to chat through any concerns about your ability to walk, she would be happy to chat).
There will be some hills, but no mountains, and all walks will be taken at a very easy pace with plenty of time to stop and admire the views. There will be pauses along the routes with poems and reflections using the Celtic Christian tradition, along with other sources.
