Heart-fullness: Transformation in Christ
This retreat is based on the work of Thomas Keating and Cynthia Bourgeault. It will focus on the contemplative dimension of the Gospel which manifests as an ever deepening union with Christ and the practical caring for others that flows from this relationship. Whilst pondering the teachings of Jesus we will reflect on the exercise of leadership through an attitude of humility, listening and service.
