Quiet week in September by the Sea


This is a beautiful time away, at Othona, Burton Bradstock, Dorset.  It is nearly a week of quiet.  Not a retreat so much as time to let be and unfurl.  Othona do these weeks twice a year and they always book up so I’m posting this early.  My job is merely to prepare quiet in the wonderful chapel morning and evening and to be available should you want some time alone to talk.  This time we are thinking about emptiness and the different things it can mean when we experience it.  But it is not necessary to consider this at all! As always at Othona, the spirituality is open to all which is one reason why I return again and again.  If you have not visited before the beach is a 15 minute walk down a path across fields and the grounds of Othona are also a place for quiet in one of the turning seasons.

Our work is simply this: to become the emptiness that can receive.
