The dreaming spires have long disappeared. Today’s university lecturers are fighting exhaustion and overwork, and rarely have space to ponder, to potter or to pray. Here is the chance to enjoy a bit of space from the pressure, with like-minded colleagues, and to reflect at a deeper level on why the job is worth doing, and on how we ought to be doing it.
The Augustinian Sisters of Boarbank Hall offer Time to Reflect over the weekend of 11-13 March 2016. The weekend will include talks and discussion, time to walk or sight-see, the opportunity for shared prayer, with time to relax and reflect in beautiful and peaceful surroundings.
The weekend is aimed in particular at university and college lecturers who are Christians of any persuasion. Anyone with teaching experience in higher education who is sympathetic to its general aims would also be welcome to come.
