Arrangement of the physical space
We will do several spiritual exercises during the day. Each will involve movement to stations in the room. There will also be a number of small group conversations as we reflect on the exercises. This means that the space has to be organized to allow for easy movement. So there will be no tables to sit at in the room. Please come expecting to move around in the space for at least two exercises and as we go to small groups for conversation.
Michelle and Bob are members of the Order of the Ascension
