With Brian’s unique blend of evocative reflection and practical application, this rerun of an inspiring day helps us to draw breath .
Holiday for the Soul ~ a quiet day broadcast online with Brian Draper from the Royal Foundation of St Katharine
27th November 2020
Following the huge success of its first broadcast in August 20, we are thrilled to be able to offer this day again.
How Brian leads this day with care and wisdom ensures it remains totally relevant as a gentle, restorative retreat day.
Brian helps us to open up the kind of restful space in which to switch off well where we are, and to reconnect with what feeds the soul.
He brings his usual blend of evocative reflection, practical application and inspiring re-connection with the outdoors, to help us into a safe and sustaining place in which to draw breath this autumn- while asking, too, how we can ‘re-enter’ the fray with energy and focus. Be inspired, and let some peace, restoration, creativity and clarity overflow!
This online experience was originally filmed in the summer of 2020 from the extraordinary urban oasis of The Royal Foundation of St Katharine. While the weather may have changed the deep meanings and insights Brian helps reveal for us have not, and we look forward to welcoming you to join us for what we know will be a day of inspiration.
You might have heard me on BBC Radio 4’s Thought for the Day, on the Today programme. It’s a good indicator of what I try to do: help people of all faiths and none to see the world from a creative and engaging spiritual perspective. In 2 mins 45.
Most recently, I’ve co-written Soulful Nature: A spiritual field guide (with the botanist Howard Green). it’s about finding a deeper connection with nature, and unearthing our own soulful nature in the process.
I’ve also written Soulfulness: Deepening the Mindful Life … Mindfulness takes us very helpfully to the threshold of soul, I believe – but how do we cross that threshold and enter into a more soulful life? Then there’s What Matters Most? – which asks how we reconnect with what does matter, and then … how we can act as if we mean it! Less is More explores how we can live more soulfully within our consumerist world of More, Bigger, Faster.
