Sign up for:  The Aidan and Hilda Week Retreat …..  August 31 – Sept. 4  “Zoom Into New Ways”  ~ Led by Ray Simpson, Founding Guardian 

No retreats? On-line resources emerge. Having discussed ways of replacing cancelled retreats with  on-line teaching/sharing sessions with our guardians, Ray is preparing to replace our Aidan and Hilda Week Retreat with the on-line teaching sessions followed by sharing of inspirations and questions.  A detailed agenda is available upon request.

Please book by emailing revd.ray.simpson@btinternet.co  He will send you zoom details.

[Note: Ray Simpson wanted our US Community to know that if those in some time zones can only zoom into one session per day, he will email you the text of the talk you miss.]
