About the event

Come away and rest awhile at our gentle and creative retreat. Using simple creative mediums of texture

colour, and movement, we will reflect, digest, and envision your spiritual journey. Stop and be refreshed in this peaceful setting with nutritious food, sweeping vistas, and walking tracks.

The retreat will follow a daily rhythm of morning, noon, and night prayer.  Full silence will be kept for

most of the retreat to assist in the contemplation and inward process, with optional sharing during creative group time.

From Friday 16 July,  7 pm until Sunday 1:00 pm. Limited numbers, early registration suggested.
