I found the week of guided prayer very meaningful. I found it helpful having the time with H. who gently guided my thinking. It was good to have a focused week where I had decided to set aside the time for reflection with God, and having the time each day with Helen helped me to sort through the things that came up in my times of quiet. I also appreciated the devotional services at the beginning and end of the week. They were lovely times of quiet and reflection and very peace giving. It was a very enriching week.
Thank you for your feedback.

I find it hard to get away for a weekend or week but this I could do. One hour a day committed to my prayer life, helped me do what I want to do every other week, but fail to achieve. The results of setting this time aside with God were awesome.
It was an experience of God rather than a duty to pray. God touched my inner most being & I'm still processing it.
I believe an important factor of this week was my personal commitment of time to be with God. I experienced "God moments" that brought an awareness of how I can be with God. I was rewarded
with sharing with my prayer guide by exploring new ways to pray and develop my relationship and spiritual journey with God.
The guided prayer week was a wonderful time to draw away from daily life with God while still doing life as usual. Watching the process with another enhanced the experience and understanding that I have of God.
I was so ready to take some time out and do a retreat - I had
prayed about going on a retreat, as I felt a strong desire to be closer to God.
My idea was to go away somewhere for a bit of R&R and remove myself completely from my family, friends, and community. Little did I know that this was the particular retreat I was meant to attend.
Throughout the week I was open to listening to God more. It was
such a joy to wake up in the morning not knowing what was going to be happening. Yes I had the everyday chores to do, but for whatever reason, I was ready for this week.
