Finding God in Everyday Life: A retreat for women

In modern day life, with its distractions, anxieties, depression, anger, and addiction, it seems hard to experience God’s transforming love and healing touch. However, God is nearer to us than we are to ourselves and deep intimacy with God is possible in everyday life.

This retreat will draw on the teaching of Fr Martin Laird OSA, who follows 2000 years of Christian tradition, to provide participants with strategies to detach from distractions that hinder us from intimacy with God, and lead us into silent depths within. In silence we discover our loving Lord. Gradually we learn how to carry that knowledge into the nitty-gritty of our everyday lives.

  • Understand the possibility of deep intimacy with God in everyday life
  • Acknowledge the distractions that hinder us from intimacy with God
  • Identify prayer strategies
  • Learn how to integrate prayer with everyday life

“For God alone. O my Soul. Wait in silence. For my hope is from him.” (Psalm 62:5)
