Finding forgiveness

Jonathan Males

Forgiving can be easy to say and harder to do. Yet its practice lies at the heart of being Christian. This workshop will help you explore forgiveness and develop simple practices for forgiving others and yourself. This leads to more freedom, joy and gratitude within your life. There will be periods of individual reflection, reading, guided exercises, and conversation in small groups.  We will maintain a safe and confidential environment, and you won’t be asked to share anything that you prefer not to.

Jonathan Males PhD is a psychologist, executive coach and spiritual director who helps people in all walks of life to know themselves better and fulfil their potential.

Looking towards Advent

Jo Chambers snd

The seven beautiful ‘O Antiphons’ come upon us (17th to 23rd December) as we endure the busiest time before Christmas Day.  We will spend an evening of contemplative reflection on these 7 inspiring Antiphons – with a short time for personal expression in word, art or silence.

Jo Chambers snd is a Sister of Notre Dame de Namur.  During almost 50 years in Education and latterly as an Art Therapist, Jo has worked extensively in enabling young people and adults to explore the Liturgy of the Word through personal and group reflection.  Breaking the Word through Art has always been central to this.
