10th – 12th  – “Love is Everything” : The Spirituality of the inspirational medieval Beguines. Led by Julie Hopkins

A retreat of reflection upon and celebrating Divine Love aided by accounts of the inspiring lives, experimental religious communities and mystical poetry and prose of three medieval Beguines.

Hadewijch of Brabant, Mechtild of Magdeburg and Marguerite Porete wrote about their spiritual experiences using the Troubadour’s genre of “romantic poetry”. in so doing they were able to explore new and feminine aspects of Christian mysticism and to contribute to the emergence of vernacular European languages. In this sense they were both pioneers of spirituality, literature and a new feminine discourse of desire.
