" This week is a rich journey with numerous twists and turns, rather like a labyrinth. It is the celebration and affirmation of a person as a much beloved and valued child of God."
"The Week of Guided Prayer is always a rich opportunity for me to go deeper in my relationship with God, and gives me valuable tools for integrating that into my life and relationships. I am very grateful!"
"It was a week of creativity, a week of imagination, a week of
discovery, a week of surprises, a week of delight, a week of deep listening and
deep sharing." HT Daly, 2019
The Week of Guided Prayer and Spiritual Exploration is an opportunity for people to learn more about prayer and explore their spirituality, and is an experiential event.
Guided prayer and spiritual exploration are not reading about God, but developing, deepening and exploring a relationship with God. Listening, reflection and awareness are at the heart of this week.
During the week you will be paired with an experienced guide who will suggest specific ways to meet God meaningfully, and guide you in various spiritual practices.
The week is a gift you give to yourself and God.
You will meet daily for about 30 minutes with your guide, who will provide you with scripture passages, poems or stories, art activities and/or meditations for you to explore or pray with at home between meetings. You may wish to journal or capture your experiences in some way, and share as you wish with your guide.
Your confidential meetings with your guide are held in sacred trust, with the purpose of developing, deepening and exploring your relationship with God.

It's different for everyone. It's between you and God.
