Allowing God to be Free – Intensive Silent Meditation Retreat

Allowing God to be Free – Intensive Silent Meditation Retreat

Speaker – Liz Watson

27 January to 4 February, 2024

Bonnevaux – On the Ground, 86370 Marçay, France

To be free ourselves we have to learn to set God free, free to lead us and love us. You could think of the days we spend together in this retreat as an experience of deeper silence and solitude in closer community.
John Main

The whole retreat is conducted in silence, sustained by a stable daily rhythm in common. The scaffolding of each day is provided by eight periods of meditation. The silence is only broken by a talk from the retreat leader, a 15 minute meeting with a mentor and a contemplative Eucharist each day.

The retreat is designed for people who are already beginning to know the transformative effect of twice-daily meditation in their lives. It requires full commitment and participation, but will be richly rewarded. If you are unsure whether it is right for you at this point don’t hesitate to talk it through with Liz Watson by contacting her at
