Soulful Saturdays with Retreat House Chester: ‘I stop…to hear the second music’ with Julia McGuinness

14th October 2017 @ 10:30 am - 3:00 pm

The noise of everyday life can be stimulating, distracting and sometimes overwhelming. Yet underneath what is happening on the surface, lies what is going on. Poet Annie Lighthart writes of a ‘Second Music,’ one ‘less heard/yet always present.’

As we help one another to wholeness, we need to discern this second music of our lives, to identify underlying themes; the discords seeking harmony; the melodies that need drawing out. In this day we will explore ways of tuning in to a deeper listening when we engage with others one-to-one.

This day will suit both those who work one-to-one and also those who have ever wondered how we can listen more deeply.

Julia is a Reader in the Ellesmere Port Team Parish. As Creative Connections Cheshire she brings together her work as a writer, counsellor and workshop leader. Her most recent books are Writing our Faith and a book of poetry on Chester City Walls

Cloister Room, Chester Cathedral 10.30am – 3pm

£25 inc. tea and coffee (please bring your lunch or use the Cathedral Refectory / nearby)
