Short Courses

Soul Seekers offers short-courses aimed at supporting you to develop a deep spiritual life through time-honored practices and ideas based around silence, meditation and reflection.

Soul Seekers courses support you to incorporate Christian contemplative practices and ideas into your everyday life to help you grow in relationship with God, and live a deeper, more fulfilling life.

Soul Seekers courses combine the wisdom of ancient and contemporary contemplative teachers with a twist of modern psychology.

Soul Seekers courses are an open and welcoming environment to explore your spirituality, ask the tricky questions and be honest about who you are and how you wish to grow spiritually.

Currently Soul Seekers offers two spirituality courses:

Living Inside-Out

Living Inside-Out

Living Inside-Out  is a more-in depth 7-week course with St Benedict of Nursia, regarded as ‘the Father of Western Monasticism’ as our primary guide. Using practices and ideas once only associated with monasteries, Living Inside-Out will help us to spiritually enrich our daily lives. Living Inside-Out enables us to discover and experience God for ourselves, find meaning and fulfilment within everyday life and learn how to make a positive difference in the world around us.

What You’ll Learn

Living Inside-Out gives us deeper knowledge into:

  • The importance of Silence and Solitude.
  • Sacred Pauses and how they can help us grow spiritually.
  • Lectio Divina – the sacred meditative reading of scripture and other spiritual materials.
  • Contemplative Prayer – the prayer of Silence.
  • Spiritual Direction – journeying with a spiritual companion.
  • Radical self-honesty – compassionately noticing and welcoming who we are.
  • Growing Community – as institutional church declines how do we nurture our need for spiritual community?
