Long Road Home

Led by Margaret Whipp

Few people get through life, or ministry, without some devastating experience of illness, failure, or bereavement. These earthquake seasons – whether in our own lives or in the lives of those close to us – can be times of profound struggle and unique opportunity. Either way, no one emerges from the mayhem unchanged.

Ignatius of Loyola is a saint for the long journey of recovery. Knocked off his legs by a cannonball at the peak of a promising military career, he chose to learn the deepest lessons of faith and hope from an invalid’s couch. His insights into the spiritual journey have inspired generations of Christians to follow their deepest calling on the pilgrim road.

This retreat offers a gentle space to explore the life-giving invitation of Ignatian spirituality through creative reflection and imaginative prayer.

Silent retreat with guided meditation and addresses. Suggested prayer and reflection exercises. 1 to 1 slots available. 

Margaret Whipp is an Anglican priest, theologian and writer. After many years in active ministry and theological education, she enjoys a retirement practice in spiritual direction and pastoral supervision. She is a tutor on the Ignatian Spirituality Course in London and an assistant chaplain at Exeter college in Oxford. Her books include the SCM Studyguide in Pastoral Theology and The Grace of Waiting.
