Making (Sacred) Space for Staff Renewal and Transformation

I explore two principal approaches here. The first looks at integrating certain spiritual practices rooted in the mystical-contemplative tradition into mainstream retreat/time out days for professional carers. Early evaluations (see suggest success in helping staff restore compassion in their work and personal transformation that supports greater awareness and self care. The second is providing individual residential retreats or periodic sessions involving spiritual direction for those in spiritual crisis (e.g. burnout, bereavement, facing terminal illness) or simply seeking spiritual depth outwith conventional religious settings/doctrines. About half the retreatants at Sacred Space are from health care backgrounds. Personal transformation and living life more meaningfully, heart-centred and purposefully (including the path of service) emerges from this approach
