Monday 30 July to Friday 3 August
Individually-Guided Retreat at Michaelgarth, Tymawr Convent, Lydart NP25 4RN
This retreat, following the Ignatian tradition, offers the opportunity to meet one-to-one with your guide, Ali Green, to reflect each day on your experience through your stay. 
Michaelgarth, the guest house of Tymawr Convent, is set in its own peaceful garden, with plenty of nearby walks and quiet places in beautiful countryside.
If you wish, you can join the Sisters in the Convent chapel nearby for the midday Eucharist each day, and come together for a short time of shared silent prayer each evening. There will be plenty of time to relax, to enjoy the environment, to pray and to reflect.

'Peaks, Shallows and Deeps': Lakeside reflections on Christian discipleship today
A guided holiday retreat hosted by the Church of the Ascension, Cadenabbia, Lake Como, Italy.
How can we refresh our discipleship and be willing to move forward on our journey of faith? How can we cope with changes in ourselves, our circumstances, the church and the world? In what ways can we let God breathe new life into us when our spirituality feels tired or stuck, especially as we get older? These are some of the questions we hope to address in this holiday retreat. 695 Euros full board.

26 to 28 March
Enneagram – An Introduction led by Karen Webb
The Enneagram is an ancient, dynamic, and extraordinarily accurate model of human personality and spirit. Describing nine personality types and their spiritual gifts, it enables us to look deeply into our own character, harmonise our daily lives and relationships, and understand our particular, best path to growth. This is an interactive workshop, where participant dialogue and enquiry, exploration of the difficulties and celebrations of each type, video clips, guided imaging and meditations combine to give a deep experience of each, surprisingly different, focus of attention.

29 March to 1 April
Easter Retreat with Fr Daniel O’Leary
An opportunity to meditate on, and participate in, chosen themes and ceremonies from the Holy Week liturgy. A silent retreat with special reference to our own suffering, dying, healing and transformation. Everyone welcome. Fr Daniel O’Leary is a priest, writer, teacher, an award-winning author of thirteen books and a regular contributor to the ‘Tablet’. He leads conferences and retreats around the country.

Updated Listing Saturday 21 April
