Benedictine Experience Programme

For those interested in guided retreats, each year the Institute of Benedictine Studies runs a series of Retreat & Study Weekends. These weekends in the monastery Guesthouse provide the opportunity to enter fully into the monastic rhythm and balance of prayer, work, lectio divina, hospitality and community life. There will be opportunities to to ponder the riches of the scriptures and monastic literature both in groups sessions and in personal silence and solitude. Participants are also invited to join the community for silent meals in the refectory. Benedictine Experience Weekends can be scheduled for groups of six or more participants upon request.
