MAGDALA OFFERS FOUR EXPERIENCES:
Sabbaticals, Quiet Days, Workshops in Inner Listening & Themed Retreats ...
MAGDALA SABBATICAL WEEKS IN THE GREEN ROOM
To take a Sabbatical is to give yourself a gift of time for a life giving purpose – a time to write, study, create, or envision a new stage of life or project. The Green Room is single, self catering accommodation with an atmosphere which supports solitude, but connected to a home and easy access to wide open spaces.
Suggested donation from R800 per week
MAGDALA QUIET DAYS IN THE ANGEL ROOM
A Quiet Day is a healing twenty-four hour cycle from dawn to dawn in the Angel Room at my home in Mcgregor . The Angel Room overlooks an iron ore angel garden sculpture and you can sit ‘with the angel at your back’ under the Karoo night sky. This is twin bed accommodation only with a separate entrance suitable for a day, or two days, supported retreat.
Suggested donation R 250 per day
MAGDALA SCHOOL OF THE HEART
I offer training in nurturing a ‘heart-centred’ spirituality that cuts across different spiritual traditions . I share specific practices of listening with deep empathy to your unique inner experience and I teach a Focusing-orientated ‘heartfulness’ where mind and heart are aligned . This way of listening together is the core of spiritual companionship that I offer at Temenos Retreat centre or at Angel View.
Contact me directly or through Temenos reception. Suggested donation basis -R100 per session.
MAGDALA THEMED RETREATS
A themed Magdala Retreat is a shared experience of coming to stillness and an immersion in a sacred texts which give us symbols and soul maps . We read them together slowly, listen deeply, and respond creatively . Some examples:
‘Divine Eros’ - diving deep into the poetry of John of the Cross.
‘A Curriculum of the Heart’ - Franciscan contemplative wisdom for our time.
‘The Little Way Icons’ - gazing with the ‘eye of the Heart’ with Temenos icons.
‘ A Holy Week with Mary Magdalene’ - the sacred signs in the gospel of John
with Mary as beloved companion and spiritual teacher.
‘Living Prayer Process’ - exploring the hidden dynamic of the ‘Lord’s Prayer’
