This is a proposal for an English retreat to explore Henri Nouwen’s encounter in Trosly with a poster that had part of Rembrandt’s painting of the return of the prodigal son. Nouwen first saw this image during a visit with Simone Landrien. The framed image of this poster that hangs in Pianissimo was a gift to La Ferme from Henri Nouwen. This retreat would follow the basic format of the WE retreats at La Ferme.

During the session, there will be lectures, Mass, and times for individual or group prayers and meditation. You will also be able to take part in evening celebrations and sharing sessions. The retreat will take place in silence.


From October 17 (7:15pm) to October 21 (2 pm) 2018


Fees are 300 € per person and 500 € for a couple. For those who are able to pay more it helps those facing financial difficulty, and if it is a real difficulty for you to pay the full amount please discuss the matter with us in advance of your arrival.
