Embracing the Second Half of Life

The possibility of great hope, fulfilment and meaning

This retreat will invite you to take time to connect more deeply with your life and the movement of God within it. It will invite you to notice where you are living authentically from you true self and the parts of you that are still ego-driven and desire greater freedom.

There will be opportunity to become aware of how you are growing in love and where you’re seeking for this to happen in greater measure. Through silence, centring prayer, guided mediations, reflections, sharing circles and time in solitude we will dive deeply into this powerful invitation to yield to the second half of life and the wisdom within it.

Please be aware that the nature of this retreat invites you to be fully present to yourself and God. As such, it will contain lots of silence (including some mealtimes). You will be invited to remain in solitude during personal/ non-session time. It will offer you the opportunity to move more deeply into your life which may cause places of uncertainty or pain to surface. You will be held in safe, loving space and Nicky and the community of Othona will be available to journey alongside you.


Thursday 6th – Sunday 9th July 2023.

Sessions on Thursday evening; Friday morning, afternoon and evening; Saturday morning, afternoon and evening; and Sunday morning.
