Caring: a retreat

16 - 19 August 2021, Woodbrooke online

Starting from the story of the Good Samaritan this retreat invites participants to reflect on, and work with, three aspects of caring: caring for oneself, caring about and caring for, as well as the perspective of the one cared for.

On the second day we will focus on how we can care for ourselves; on the third we will look truthfully at what we care about and the limits of what we can care about; on the fourth day we will examine the basis of our caring for – is it love or duty? How does the cared for one feel about it?

Everybody cares about something or someone and is at some time a carer or someone who is cared for. This retreat will be particularly helpful for those who are in a caring role, formal or informal, including eldership of Quaker meetings or groups.

Participants are asked to put aside at least a couple of hours a day for individual reflection in addition to the live sessions. There will be a period of worship every morning.

Live sessions are:
Monday 09.30-12:30
Tuesday 08:30-09:00 (Meeting for worship) and 19:00-20:00
Wednesday 08:30-09:00 (Meeting for worship) and 19:00-20:00
Thursday 08:30-09:00 (Meeting for worship) and 19:00-20:30
