Lent Reflection Group: ‘Waymarkers – Along the Camino Frances to Santiago’

Friday 23 February 2024, Wednesday 28 February 2024, Wednesday 06 March 2024, Wednesday 13 March 2024, Wednesday 20 March 2024 Wednesday and Friday at for 1 hour, 30 mins
Raveningham Hall

As last year, I will be facilitating a reflection group through Lent, which will run for five evening sessions leading up towards Holy Week, and will begin on Friday 23 February. These sessions will be hosted at Raveningham Hall between 7.30pm (prompt) and 9pm, with my gratitude to Sir Nicholas Bacon for hosting us – we will be using the wonderful lounge area above the garages in the old stable block (now the estate offices).

During these five weeks, we will engage with a range of beautiful and evocative images from five specific stages on my sabbatical journey in 2023, along the Camino Frances from St Jean Pied-de-Port in France to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. As we explore key waymarkers and places of significance on the Camino and what they can teach us, we will reflect on the importance of significant points in our own lives and how they might inform our life journey as well as through Lent.

Our themes each week will be:

Friday 23 February
Basque Country & The Navarre

Wednesday 28 February
Maturing and strengthening
La Rioja & Castile

Wednesday 6 March
The Wide Open Plains
Castile & León

Wednesday 13 March
Going again
León into Galicia

Wednesday 20 March
To Santiago de Compostela

No theological knowledge or preparatory reading is required – just yourselves, and a willingness to listen, chat, explore, reflect and laugh! Tea and coffee will be available.

Let me know by email or by phone if you would like to come along.
