The importance of taking some "me time"

When was the last time you took some time out to yourself to recharge, restore, rest, reflect and consider where you are in your journey of life?

Are you struggling with forgiveness?

Is your soul hungry and thirsty for more – trying to find a sacred space in your busy life?

Are old wounds resurfacing and you are finding that old habits are coming back which are stealing your peace and joy?

Why not get away to the peaceful surroundings of St Non’s in St Davids on the Pembroke Coast and take part in a weekend retreat from 28th to 30th August, 2009? This will be a small retreat of 15 people with the emphasis on healing and forgiveness and learning new ways of living and putting the past behind you, and living in the present. One of the biggest challenges of living is to live in the “now” – often guilt and shame from the past and anxiety for the future can leave us stuck in the present.

The retreat will involve the following:

Study of recovery principles using the 12 Step programme of recovery with reflections on scripture;

Workshops/ group work/ and one-to-ones on:

· Forgiveness
· “Healing through love”
· Improving communication
· Your past is your greatest asset
· How to maintain your sobriety

Inspirational speakers to motivate and inspire

Meditation and time to rest

Are you drawn to this weekend retreat? The cost will be £100 per person all inclusive.
