SORROW’S SPRINGS

‘No matter, child, the name:

GM Hopkins

both an outward and inner experience and its source lies in the depths of the

In our retreat we will contemplate, meditate and inquire into this and other
fundamental questions and ask if its possible to live our lives from a source beyond
the spring’s of sorrow.’
