Retreat for student nurse & midwife reps

Pippa Peppiatt, Head of Nursing
We recently held an annual retreat day for our student nurse/midwife group leaders (or 'reps') in Winchester. The bulk of the day was a Christian 'Kintsugi' retreat, led by local Christian artist Gill Drew. She guided us through a meditative activity which essentially involved smashing a ceramic pot that was precious to us, then glueing it back together and painting the new joins with gold paint. It was a profound and moving time, with lots of bible verses and trying to listen to the Lord at each stage of the process. It was also a good reminder of the verse Isaiah 64:8 'Yet you, Lord, are our Father. We are the clay, you are the potter; we are all the work of your hand.'
Having had a lengthy time of silent meditation, being nurses, we then needed a chance to CHAT! So, we finished our day having speciality teas in a local brasserie. The volume level certainly went up in the place as soon as we arrived!
