Visio Divina: embracing the new normal through creating images on our camera

About this event

A lot has changed over the last two years for us. Certainties we held, people we loved, the places we knew may all look different. But we can still find God in all things. The camera we carry in our pocket has the potential to help us slow down, centre in the present moment, and encounter God.

This retreat will open up the possibility of contemplative photography and show you how to incorporate it into your everyday life. You don’t need to be a skilled photographer, but you do need a camera—the one on your phone will do just fine.

The Retreat will cost £220. A subsidy of £110 is available for those in the Y+ Region. Please contact your District Office to request funding support. You may also wish to seek support from your Circuit or local church.

A deposit of £25 is requested at the time of registration.
