Residential Retreat-Pilgrimages

Los Olivos offers two residential retreat-pilgrimages in Spain each year, in the late Spring and the late Summer. In 2022, these special retreats will take place in the cities of Segovia and Toledo (near Madrid). Hosted and facilitated by the founders of Los Olivos, Guy Wynter and Daniel Muñoz, these retreats will explore different aspects of the wisdom of the Spanish mystics.

Retreats 2022

Walking in the steps of the Spanish mystics

in Segovia and Ávila

 

In this retreat-pilgrimage we will walk in the footsteps of John of the Cross and Teresa of Ávila in two of the cities that most inspired these remarkable mystics: Segovia and Ávila. We will visit some of the places that shaped them and will hear their voices through their letters. We will also explore their practical wisdom for loving and living. A wisdom that is deeply rooted in God, yet very real about life's changes and challenges.

 

Hosted and facilitated by Daniel Muñoz and Guy Wynter, the programme includes:

• Daily morning & night prayer, and closing Eucharist;

• Teaching input from Daniel Muñoz, Fr. Salvador Ros and Fr. David Jiménez;

• Three guided pilgrimage-walks in Segovia & Ávila visiting special sites connected with Teresa & John;

• Personal free time to reflect and relax in the monastery gardens;

• Return transfers from Madrid to Segovia.

• Full board and en-suite accommodation at the Segovia Discalced Carmelite monastery.

 

Prices: £750 per person (shared) / £825 (single room)

Behold the Beloved: contemplating Christ with Teresa of Avila & John of the Cross

 

In a conversation with his disciples Jesus asked them: “who do you say that I am?” (Mtt.16:15) This is one of the most important questions any follower of Christ has to wrestle with in their lives. Building on the Imagi Christi online quiet day (2020), in this retreat-pilgrimage we will contemplate Christ and explore our own images of God in conversation with the Spanish mystics, scripture and art, in the historic city of Toledo.

 

Hosted and facilitated by Daniel Muñoz and Guy Wynter, the programme includes:

• Daily morning & night prayer, & closing Eucharist;

• Teaching input from Daniel Muñoz & Fr. Ricardo Plaza;

• Two guided pilgrimage-walks in Toledo visiting special sites connected with Teresa and John;

• Guided visits of “The Humanity of Christ” exhibition, and the El Greco Museum, exploring Christ in art;

• Personal free time to reflect and relax in the monastery;

• Return transfers from Madrid to Toledo.

• Full board and en-suite accommodation at the Toledo Discalced Carmelite monastery.
