Make your whole life a prayer
Weekend Retreat


November 12-14th 2021

Beechwood House, Duncton, Petworth, GU28 0NA
West Sussex, UK



To make your life a prayer is to hold in your heart your greatest desire, your highest intention, and be prepared to do anything and everything you are asked as the granting of it unfolds. In practice, you will be asked to do far less than you might imagine, but just enough to give you opportunities to waver. Don't. Hold up your end of the bargain and your desire will be fulfilled.
Bart Marshall



Make your whole life a prayer


We set out on a path of inquiry, not really knowing for sure where we are at or where we are going, yet we yearn for answers. Inspired by the work of Richard Rose and the TAT Foundation, through presentations and group work, and with guidance and leadership from Tess Hughes, we will explore how we might make our lives into a prayer and what that might mean for us all individually.

Costs for the event will be £80, which includes accommodation in the house.

A charge of £60 for those taking lodgings elsewhere.

Please pay here through PayPal.

Tess Hughes was born in the West of Ireland and still lives there. She spent 50 years seeking something, not knowing what, and not conscious what she was seeking, until she finally found the answer she had always been seeking as Self-realisation, Enlightenment or Christ consciousness in 2010.

Her book, This Above All, is a spiritual memoir, where she shares that journey, the journey that everyone is on, whether they know it or not. Her path is very modern in the sense that it is not locked into any one tradition, but is informed by all of the major religions of the world. She refers to the classical spiritual teachings which guided her as the perennial wisdom.

Tess had a wealth of teaching experience teaching and leading retreats, she is currently involved with various groups in Ireland, and more recently online, and will be leading and guiding us through the weekend.
