About the event

“Come with me by yourselves to a quiet place and get some rest.”  - Mark 6: 31

Come spend a weekend at Sister Eveleen Retreat House for a creative and contemplative silent retreat led by Glenda Joy. We'll be working with the mediums of texture, colour, and movement to reflect and envision the seasons of our life and how they inform and shape our world.

This weekend will be a time of sabbath, a space where you can explore your spiritual journey away from the busyness of everyday life. Take a moment to stop and be refreshed in a peaceful setting with nutritious food, sweeping vistas, and walking tracks. 

The retreat follows Sister Eveleen House's daily rhythm of contemplative 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.

To register, please book a ticket through the link below. You'll be invoiced for a $60 deposit after registration. 

Cost: $240 (if you'd like to come but the cost is prohibitive, please get in touch as we may be able to assist)


Friday, July  1, 7 pm -  Sunday, July 3, 1 pm
