Soulful Nature: a quiet day with Brian Draper
~ to reflect on our own nature in the light of nature itself
Friday 15th May 2020
Brian Draper’s new book Soulful Nature: A Spiritual Field Guide (co-written with botanist Howard Green) reflects on how we discover more of our own nature from within nature itself. He went on 12 walks in the South of England, across the 12 months of the year, following in the footsteps of poets, scientists, nature writers, even fossil hunters … in search of a deeper communion with God and Creation along the way.
In this evocative day, Brian will create space through guided reflection and the practice of contemplative spirituality, to help reconnect with more of our own ‘wild divinity’, our creatureliness, and the seasons and cycles and rhythms of which we’re part. He’ll share some of the themes that emerged most strongly as he walked, and provide inspiration for how we can maintain soulful contact with nature, even in a city.
Join this day at St Katharines extraordinary urban oasis, a chance to step aside from the City but not leave it.
The day includes welcome coffee and pastries, lunch and afternoon pot of tea and cake.
Cost – £35
