Make an Enquiry


Tell me what it is you plan to do with your one wild and precious life”  is a quote from Mary Oliver’s poem The Summer Day and is a question many of us ask at different times in our life’s journey.

Over the weekend writer and broadcaster John Mackenna will lead a retreat based around the work of  the poet Mary Oliver whom he says “ is one of the most popular but also one of the most spiritual of contemporary poets”

Over the course of the retreat  we will explore her approaches through different mediums to the worlds of  prayer, spirituality , the environment, loss and self-discovery .

Mary Oliver was an exemplar of environmental awareness. The woodlands and walks around Ardbraccan will hopefully facilitate our reflection on and responsibility for The natural world.
