February 25 – February 28, 2019
The Manor House in Castle Combe, The Cotswolds, UK
Holy language has many forms of expression: Sacred dance, sacred music, sacred art, and sacred rituals. But in our lives we most often turn to prayer, guidance and grace as our personal vessel to connect with the Sacred. Holy language may well be the oldest language in the world, given its many expressions. Human beings have sensed since the beginning of tribal life that something – some force – greater than themselves was the source of creation. And they honored that Source.
Holy language is distinctly different from ordinary language, though many of the words are the same. It stands apart from ordinary language because of our intention and because the words written by the authors of sacred texts were guided by grace. They were written with the intention of bringing grace and illumination to the reader, not information.
Understanding the power of holy language can change your life. Holy language has the capacity to inspire you, to open your inner world to guidance, to bring you to a place of resolution, and to help you see your way through a dark night. We turn to holy language when we need healing, when we are in despair, and when we recognize we have been given a miracle. Ordinary language is simply inadequate to communicate the gratitude of the soul.
In this workshop, I will examine the meaning of “holy” within the contemporary setting of our lives. What is holy? What meaning should that have for us today? And I will introduce “holy language” and the power of those words applied to every day situations. Would problems in your life shift in any way if you used holy language to describe them?
We will explore the power of prayer and what it means to receive inner guidance. What exactly is the power of prayer and how do you know prayers are answered?
Finally, we will apply holy language to healing and inner transformation. How do we pursue deep healing of inner wounds? How do we seek our inner nature while being terrified of finding it?
I hope you will join me for this powerful workshop. The Holy Language: Prayer, Guidance and Grace is my next book and I am thrilled to teach this extraordinary, life-changing subject. Attendance at the Manor House is limited to under 50 participants, meaning that this will be a very intimate workshop, and a unique opportunity for deep inner work.

Frequently Asked Questions
I live nearby – is it possible to attend this workshop without staying at the hotel?
The venue where this workshop is being held has limited capacity and we only have enough space for people who are staying at the hotel. For this reason, we are unable to offer other options for attendance.
Is there any certification or Continuing Education credit offered with this workshop?
While our workshops can benefit and enhance your professional practice, we do not offer any certification or CE credit.
Do you offer any scholarships or discounts in exchange for work?
We are not equipped to evaluate students for aptitude and/or financial need equitably – therefore we are unable to offer scholarships. Our workshops are professionally staffed so we do not offer discounts in exchange for service.
