Quiet Garden Trust & Movement
The Quiet Garden Movement nurtures access to outdoor space for prayer and reflection in a variety of settings, such as private homes, churches, retreat centres, schools and hospitals – and creates opportunities for people to experience silence, restfulness and contemplative practices, with regular quiet days and retreats being offered in many Quiet Gardens. There are over 300 Quiet Gardens worldwide.
The core values of Quiet Gardens include:
Hospitality – the offer of a warm-hearted, simple welcome to all
Contemplation – the practice of silence, stillness, meditation and prayer
Nature Connection – the opportunity to deepen our relationship with the natural world
Creativity – the provision of quiet outdoor space to inspire
