We are happy to announce that Susan Mansfield, who is trained in reflective spirituality with the Epiphany Group in Edinburgh and Ignatian Spirituality Centre, will be hosting two new quiet days here at Emmaus House. All the events require sufficient numbers to go ahead so please consider helping us by booking early if you can. Some days also fill up fast, so I don’t want anyone to be disappointed! No one should be deterred from taking part on grounds of cost; if this is an issue, please get in touch to discuss. Susan is grateful to all those participants, who, by their generosity, help to make it possible for others to attend.

Breathe on me, breath of God – A Quiet Day for Pentecost

Saturday 12th May

Emmaus House, 14 Gilmore Place, Edinburgh, 10am-4pm

The breath of Jesus, breathed on his disciples; the Counsellor, Helper, constant companion; the gift of God, fanned into flame… As Pentecost approaches, this is an invitation to take time to consider what this great gift means for us now, and notice – perhaps out of the corner of our eye – the movements of the quiet, mysterious Third Person of the Trinity.

The day will include a mix of guided reflection and individual quiet time, with a chance to rest, reflect and be creative. Cost £30 (£20 concession) includes lunch and coffee & cake. To book a place, email wordsmansfield@gmail.com, or call 07803 620038. Please consider booking by Monday 30th April if possible.

The Summer Day – A Quiet Day for Summer

Saturday 23rd June

Emmaus House, 14 Gilmore Place, Edinburgh, 10am-4pm

“…what is it you plan to do

with your one wild and precious life?”

Mary Oliver, ‘The Summer Day’

As summer arrives (at last!) this is an invitation to take time to consider the value of rest and re-creation, to think about what it means to have fullness of life. It’s a chance to notice the world around us in its summer splendour and think about growth, fruitfulness and lying down in green pastures.

The day will include a mixture of guided reflection and individual quiet time, a chance to rest and reflect, and an opportunity to be outdoors, weather permitting. Cost £30 (£20 concession) includes lunch and coffee & cake. To book a place email me on wordsmansfield@gmail.com, or call 07803 620038. Please consider booking by Monday 11th June if possible.
