Ian will be reflecting on stories of the risen Jesus from the Gospels, drawing on the wisdom of Julian of Norwich and opening up possible ways to pray, including Lectio Divina, Centering Prayer, the Beloved Life practices of Terra Divina (prayer with the landscape) and Body Prayer for the Beatitudes. Throughout the retreat Ian will be sharing poems, images and stories from his own continuing journey deeper into faith, hope and love.
Ian Adams is a poet, photographer, and priest. He is co-chaplain at Ridley Hall Cambridge, Spirituality Adviser at Church Mission Society, partner in the Beloved Life project, and creator of Morning Bell.
‘Ian’s collection of poems Unfurling enable us to attend to the sacredness present in all things, and to rediscover the depth of our connection to the earth, its creatures, and the people around us. The notion of unfurling is suggestive of movement and growth, inviting us to let go of the anxieties and fears that bind us, and to open ourselves to the possibility of transformation. Ian’s poetry is memorable in its beauty and simplicity.’
