Take some time to breathe quietly and softly as you enter this space of reflection. Notice each breath as it enters and leaves your body.

I welcome you Lord into my Advent Retreat. Help me to renew a place of inward rest throughout the season. Everything looks different this year. And still, you are my calm centre. Your coming to the world is a miracle. Your love for me is a Refuge of Peace. 

St. Patrick's Hymn before Tara

"Christ, as a light,
Illumine and guide me!
Christ, as a shield, o'ershadow and cover me!
Christ be under me! Christ be over me!
Christ be beside me
On left hand and right!
Christ be before me, behind me, about me!
Christ this day be within and without me!"

--- James Clarence Mangan

Read the verse above until a particular aspect stands out to you. Light a candle and repeat the words aloud. Allow space for the Holy Spirit to speak to you. Posture your listening spirit to receive from God. 
Listen to O Come, O Come Emmanuel by Enya

A review on Christmas Conversations by Emma Hepburn:

"A wonderful book, filled with a gentle, compassionate hope.
Thank you Jenneth for your beautiful book. Reading it has been a refreshment to my soul and has helped me to reflect on the season of Christmas and my own relationship with God. You manage to bring alive the wonderful story of Christmas and it’s relevance to each of us now, through your gentle reflections and the compassionate dialogue, using your Spirit led, poetry. This book is truly a blessing and would make a wonderful advent or Christmas gift."
