Space For Grace Retreat

September 6 @ 4:00 pm - September 8 @ 2:00 pm

 

Come and join Ann-Marie for this weekend retreat in the heart of the beautiful Surrey/Sussex countryside, where you can totally surrender and remember the truth of who you really are. She will hold a space of grace and love and gently support you to recognise that the light, joy and peace you seek are already within. This is for anyone wishing to create a meaningful spiritual practise or for those wanting to deepen their connection and alignment to Source and accept their purpose in the World.

This is an opportunity to come as you are and be as you are – to surrender to your true power and alignment to the God of your own understanding. Some call this Love by name: Universe, Beloved, Higher Power, Jesus, Buddha, Sheva, Great Spirit, Krishna, Abraham, Heart, Friend etc etc. But regardless of the name, in my experience and many great teachings, this is the only constant source that will sustain us, love us, guide us and support us to be all that we are. When we attune to this Source life unfolds without effort and grace becomes our guiding light.

We will join together and open our hearts and commune with the presence of Love. We will be willing to remove the blocks to the awareness of this presence which is always with us, but we shield with old limiting beliefs, stories and pain. When we slow down and choose a space for grace we can open up to the guiding light within.

It is such a relief to then surrender our lives to this Love and let it be in charge. The ego of course will scream as it feels a need to be in control, but that’s ok – we gently love and sooth that part of us and trust our inner guidance system to find the solutions in natural and flowing ways.

At the heart of the weekend Ann-Marie will facilitate/guide your journey with self enquiry, meditation and simple exercises to free yourself of the veils that block the presence of love.   We will come to remember that appreciation, self care, self love, self acceptance and connection is the true path to inner peace and what we cultivate within will manifest without.

 

Claridge House Retreat Centre is the perfect venue for our retreat:

Their Core Purpose: Claridge House provides a space where people of any faith or none may stay for a while in peace and stillness before returning, rested and renewed, to their everyday lives. It is a charming Victorian property set in two acres of beautiful garden. Inside the house there are two spacious lounges, a dining room and a library/quiet room.

Their Values: To embody in our welcome the Quaker understanding that each person is a unique and precious individual. To provide a friendly, high quality service that nourishes a spirit of well-being in all who cross our threshold. To be mindful of sustainability in the use of our resources.

A Bit of History: Claridge House was built in the middle of the 19th century and in 1954 members of the Society of Friends (Quakers) acquired it and opened it to guests looking for rest and renewal, offering a place of sanctuary to those who were tired and stressed, or in need of a quiet break so that they might return home feeling refreshed.
