Quiet Day guests are welcome to use the Chapel or the Oratory for prayer whenever they are available. Free Wi-Fi, tea and coffee is provided and guests are welcome to use the gardens.

The Poustinia

On warmer days, our garden building, or poustinia, makes a lovely space for a Quiet Day. A poustinia is a Russian cabin for solitary prayer. We hope our summerhouse in the shade of a giant redwood tree evokes that spirit of a quiet place of prayer in the woods.

It was a privilege to say morning prayer with you and join with you in the calm, healing, prayer-soaked atmosphere of the chapel.

The day was so beneficial to myself. I just want to thank you all.
