Life in the modern world and especially in this digital age brings with it a whole host of pressures – not least to always be connected and busy. Sometimes we need time to just reflect on life and a space to feel calm.
We really do understand this at The Royal Foundation of St Katharine and have a whole program of non-led events dedicated to this purpose that happen on the second Monday of every month. These are called Open Reflective Days that are designed specifically to help visitors unwind and take some time out from daily life.
There is of course a framework for the day with refreshments and snacks throughout (including a lovely afternoon tea, coffee and pastries and a sandwich lunch) but everything is absolutely optional with no pressure or requirement to attend the sessions.
What does St Katharine's Look Like?
Our wonderful and peaceful gardens are available for you to use as well as many of the beautiful rooms at the Royal Foundation of St Katharine.
The next Open Reflective Day takes place on Monday 12th June and we would love for you to join us. We know that everyone can benefit from these events and lots of people do!
Feedback from previous attendees
“Very good. Plenty of space and optional chapel prayers”
“I appreciate the ‘kindness’ of the format, at a generous affordable cost”
“Great food and coffee. Loved the sessions in the Chapel”
“I enjoyed the variety of food – well done. The rooms were very cosy and very refreshing”
“The staff are brilliant.. As always one is greeted with a welcoming smile. Well done”
Again, we do not intend to have these as led events just an opportunity for people to have some space and quiet in their lives. The cost of £15 for the day will includes everything as well as refreshments as mentioned above. You are welcome to stay from 8am – 6pm and join us at our Welcome Meditation at 10.30am.
Can I stay longer than just the Open Reflective Day?
There is also the option to extend your peaceful time at St Katharine's by including an overnight stay with a full B&B experience. Please do take this wonderful opportunity for the Sunday night before the Open Reflective Day by booking online, emailing [email protected] or by calling 0300 111 1147.
