Holy Week Christian Meditation Retreat 24th to 31st March, 2013
Join us for a meditation retreat with Fr Laurence Freeman OSB and explore the mysteries of Easter. The Bere Island Easter Retreat will be an interior pilgrimage of the Easter mysteries as they unfold in Holy Week. The retreat programme includes regular meditation periods, talks by Fr Laurence Freeman OSB, the Easter liturgies with the island people with time for reading, walks and solitude. With its deep history and great natural beauty, Bere Island is an ideal space to open to the spiritual meaning of the season.
Including a full day of dialogue, prayer and meditation with
His Holiness the Dalai Lama and Fr. Laurence Freeman OSB
Important NOTE: This pilgrimage itinerary is a parallel itinerary to the original pilgrimage itinerary, which is now fully subscribed. This second itinerary is slightly shorter, and will not overlap with the first, except for the day in Sarnath with Fr. Laurence and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. This group will be accompanied by a representative of WCCM, and will be guided by a local tour manager throughout.
For the first time this year the Fr. Laurence's talks at the Holy Week Retreat on Bere Island will be broadcast live.
Since the DSL speed on Bere Island is not the fastest, we will not have HD quality. But we are sure it will be adequate to allow viewers around the world to feel they are present at the retreat. Of course the talks will be on our YouTube channel later in the day.
