20th – 24th March – What has Wordsworth to Offer us Today? Barbara Windle NEW

Wordsworth’s poetry offers strong feeling and sensibility combined with rich meditative thought and spiritual awareness. His openness to mystical experience in its very broadest sense strikes a chord with us today as he moves beyond conventional labels to find the deep places within himself. Our sessions will include a fresh, in depth look at the Immortality Ode, Tintern Abbey, Michael, parts of The Prelude and The Excursion.

Course finishes Friday 12.00 pm.

15 places. £375.00

Led by Diana & John Lampen.
Quaker faith and life are based on experience. “This I knew experimentally,” said Fox. But what is this experience? In this course we will look at what that experience was at the beginning of the Quaker movement. We will undertake an experiment to see whether the experience is still available to us. Part of this will be a meditation in which we experience “the Light” as early Friends understood it. This can be searching and powerful. We will also reflect on the significance of the light for our lives today.
