Retreats & Quiet Days

The ancient word "retreat" is paradoxical for while it calls on us to retreat from the trivial, it requests we venture into deeper areas.

A retreat is not about getting tidy answers from God and ourselves, but about questioning. It is a journey into the truth which, Jesus says, will set us free.

The centre schedules numerous varied retreats and quiet days. In addition, you can plan your own personal day(s) of reflection.

What happens on a retreat or quiet day?

At the core is time spent in silence with God.

The daily round of a retreat includes Eucharist and private prayer, reading, walking and lots of sleeping. Often, this time apart helps us realise how exhausted we are.

In a "preached retreat" the conductor encourages participants to reflect on a common spiritual theme. A private retreat enables personal reflection on private issues in consultation with a Spiritual Director.

We can never predict how God will use our quiet time. Sometimes the journey is painful and other times we are overwhelmingly surprised at how close God is to us. But always we are nurtured, healed, liberated and transformed.

Не вижу аналогов в русском православии, а потому не вмжу возможности привести аналогичное русское название. Есть, правда понятие "день покоя", так что можно было бы его здесь использовать.
...призывает нас к тому, чтобы мы использовали этот день покоя (т.е.воскресенье) правильным образом, чтобы имели время на отдых, поклонение и служение. Пусть же мы найдем правильное равновесие в этом вопросе во время изучения Божьего Слова...

Однако Quiet Days - это не nолько и не столько воскресенья, сколько дни, в которые в общинах (преимущественно евангелистских и англиканских, но не только) осуществляется определенная программа "мероприятий" (говоря бюрократическим языком). Each event is different, but all will have the same purpose - to help people, particularly those for whom this is a new experience, appreciate the opportunity to be still and enjoy the benefits that stillness brings. In quietness people can become aware of the presence of God in their lives.
Яркий пример вот здесь:
Вот программа Quiet Days в приходе Wydale Hall:
Listening through Nature
Musical Theme
Understanding and Exploring the Bible
Quiet Days/Workshops (Тhemes: Crafts, Quilting, Flower Arranging, Candle
Making, Embroidery)
и т.д.
Иными словами, Quiet Day - это День умиротворенности, душевного равновесия и покоя
